Summary

  • The LensPen, a very high-tech solution

In the middle of a virtual reality experience, you discover a task on your screen. The kind of detail that can ruin an experience but a solution exists with LensPen.

Those who wear classic glasses know this well. A stain, a fingerprint on a glass is impossible to miss. The situation is the same virtual or augmented reality. However better to use a lens pencil than your polo shirt or a cloth lying around to clean the lenses of your virtual reality headset...



The LensPen, a very high-tech solution

A variation of this small cleaning pencil is already used for the lenses found for image capture on drones or for conventional cameras. However, the company that markets the LensPen now wants to make it available for fans of virtual reality and augmented reality. While this is still a somewhat limited market, the potential is clearly evident. Just as a photographer does not want to see his shot ruined by a small mark, a virtual reality enthusiast does not appreciate destroying his feeling of immersion because of a stain at the bottom of the lens.

This LensPen pencil, compatible with PSVR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Quest, Valve Index or even the vast majority of VR headsets (not to say all) does not take up space and can be stored without too much worry. A small brush allows easy cleaning and a small carbon accessory erases traces. Count $ 12,95 per pencil and it's good for around 500 cleanings. Using a cloth to clean the lenses of your virtual reality headset can permanently scratch them.
