VivenChill uses a dual fan cooling fan system that, blows aways the hot air from the inside of the HTC Vive headset and instead it gives you cooling. The ViveNchill is a heat fighter! It’s effective, quiet, and discrete. It’s the perfect companion for your headset, keeping you cooler and more comfortable with the press of a button.

The Vive’s amazing room scale ability allows players to be physically engaged and immersed in endless alternate realities for hours at a time. However, wearing a bulky headset while being physically active is the perfect recipe for an uncomfortable and sweaty situation. The ViveNchill is a heat fighter! It’s effective, quiet, and discrete. It’s the perfect companion for your headset, keeping you cooler and more comfortable with the press of a button.
We iterated over many design choices when creating the ViveNchill. Our initial prototypes focused on piping air into the headset. Users complained about dry eyes, high noise levels, vibration, interference with the built in mic, and low cooling effect. So we took things outside and directed airflow at the forehead and contact area with the facial foam. We found a drastic improvement in its ability to cool you off with no negative side effects. As an added benefit, reducing heat and moisture also reduced fogging and nausea.
