This versatility also provides them to use 3D Heaven Glasses in theatres which use RealD or circular 3D technology. They don’t need any syncing with the passive TV. This has made 3D Heaven Glasses a favourite choice for kids. It eliminates any fumbling with functions, which can be a bore for kids just starting out.

The 3D Heaven glasses come in a set of four at a very affordable price. This way, every kid in the family gets to experience 3D together.

The main advantage of this model is that it is lightweight and it maintains high resolution of the 3D TV.

This model uses high-quality abrasion resistant lenses. It resists scratching or breaking upon impact. 3D Heaven Glasses are quite flexible as they use plastic frames. They can be worn over regular eye glasses and can also fit adults with small sized heads. There’s a variety of colours to choose from for both boys and girls.

It’s no wonder kids do not complain of a headache after long hours of watching 3D TV or playing 3D video games.

3D is loads of fun for small children

It is unlike what you’d encounter with active 3D glasses. 3D Heaven Glasses allow simultaneous viewing of the images in both eyes. Your kids can watch at any time as it does not need any recharging. There is no flickering to interfere with the TVs signal. This way, it prevents visual fatigue for kids who can’t seem to get enough of the TV.

It’s always important to remember that even with its high compatibility, this pair does not work with plasma TVs or projectors. This isn’t a bad thing since many homes use LCD-based TVs. They are extremely good at sending images to the right eye, even when you angle from the recommended vertical position. The only thing you get to contend with are lines which happen only when you sit too close to the TV.

In a nutshell, 3D Heaven has put in work to bring incredible 3D glasses for kids.  It brings movies to life with high resolution, high definition images. They are versatile and durable to provide the best value for money.

How to Prevent Overheating and Sweating from Damaging Your HTC Vive

HTC Vive Sweat Damage

Many HTC Vive users have been reporting serious problems caused by overheating and sweating during prolonged sessions. Over time, Vives tend to accumulate corrosion caused by humid conditions. This is why it’s critically important you go an extra mile in order to prevent and long-term damage and extend the life-span of your HTC Vive.

Headbands & Covers

One of the easiest and cheapest ways to combat sweat damage is to use a headband whenever you have your HTC Vive on. There’s a plethora of affordable headbands available on Amazon, so get yourself one before it’s too late.

If you’re a particularly sweaty person, or if you often have friends/family come over and break a cold sweat from the unspeakable VR horrors you expose them to, it would be more than prudent to invest in covers and replacement pads.

VR Cover offers a variety of different options for you to choose from. We like the velour covers as they’re easily washable. Stay away from waterproof covers though. Their hydrophobic properties tend to divert all the sweat into the device instead of absorbing it like foam or velour.

Fans

When it comes to airflow, fans are almost indispensable. A ceiling fan is probably the best option as it will even out the flow across the entire room. However, if a ceiling fan is too much of a hassle for you, one of those big standing fans will do the trick as well. Whichever one you get, make sure it’s far enough not to get in a way, but still close to circulate the air around you.

Now, HTC Vive has recently received an interesting third-party upgrade. It’s called ViveNChill. It was crowdfunded through Indiegogo campaign initially, receiving 450%+ more funds than the fixed goal.
At the moment, the indie engineers behind this innovation are swamped with orders, so you will have to wait a bit before it arrives.

These two small fans work wonders!

This simple upgrade does wonders. ViveNChill consists of 2 small fans that get attached at the front top of your HTC Vive. They draw minimal power from the headset itself and cool your forehead. Experiments have shown that cooling down a person’s forehead actually decreases the temperature of the entire body. Thus, you will sweat less when these are on.

People report significant improvements during their VR sessions with ViveNChill attached to their Vive headsets. If headbands, facepad replacements and standing fans can’t help, get yourself two mini-fans blowing directly into your forehead. You’ll be amazed by the results.

Air Conditioning & Humidity

Obviously, air conditioning is a no brainer for an activity such as virtual reality. You don’t want to make your room too cold though, as sweat and cold are the breeding ground for viruses to have a party in your body. However, bring the room temperature down a notch or two, especially if you live in warmer climates.

Air conditioning units serve two purposes. They decrease the room temperature while simultaneously dehumidifying the air. The latter function is critical in humid areas.  Anything that can make the air a bit dryer is super useful.

If you are limited by space or architecture, there are portable air conditioners that work almost as well as conventional AC units. They are a bit pricey, true, but they’re well worth it. Alternatively, consider getting an air dehumidifier at least – the fans and headbands can take care of most of your sweat, but the lingering natural air humidity needs to go away for good.

A storage case customized for such headsets comes in handy to protect your equipment. Navitech brings us their incredible hard carry bag which is universally designed to accommodate a variety of 3D VR headsets.

It features top-quality construction using poly fiber which is robust and durable. Poly fiber is a mix of natural and synthetic fabric to make a solid case for excellent stability.

The quality of the Navitech bag is very high. It comes with a foam interior to provide a soft padding for your devices.

The lightweight design makes it portable, since you are only handling the weight of your headset. Its stability ensures a sleek and slim form. It does not bulge from the sides if you have many accessories to store. The best thing is that it includes a shoulder strap to avoid heavy lifting and strain to your hands. The strap is essential in balancing off the weight, hence eliminating any shoulder fatigue.

When it comes to organizing your headset and accessories, it’s pleasing to find the thoughtful partitions. You’ll be able to store the headsets separately from the rest of the accessories, thus preventing any device damage.

It is also ergonomically designed to offer quick access. It comes with one zipper so you are exempted from using locks where you can sometimes forget the combination. On the other hand, this may be a setback when trying to avoid theft. We feel that even with the easy access, Navitech can do a better job of preventing unwarranted entry. Nevertheless, it is an efficient case for all your virtual reality headset storage needs.
