Is your headset getting hot?

OMG this guy actually got burned 😮
So… protip for bald people. The Vive wireless adapter gets -hot- with prolonged use. Got about 1.5 hours into Organ Quarter and started to feel some pain in the top of my head, realized I was cooking my scalp. The numbness tells me I have in fact given myself a 1st degree burn. pic.twitter.com/71tKSE4usF

My headset becomes warm when I’m using it for too long, but it never became so hot it would burn my head. Are your headsets getting hot as this guy’s?October 10, 2018 at 3:50 pm #1893therealjamesParticipant

Same here, but I’ve only used it for like an hour, an hour and 10 minutes at a time max, after that I get dizzy and need to take a break…October 10, 2018 at 8:31 pm #1897timboooParticipant
Sorry but that’s quite funny. Not sure it’s completely legit though. Why would you feel burning and not take the set off your head. I’ve never seen something to that degree before but if you do shave your head and play VR for extended period you could always put a cloth or something on top of your head before you start.October 11, 2018 at 12:03 am #1906TolphasParticipant
I know, whole thread is hilarious 😀 Good thing guy’s a VR developer and is not considering lawsuit. He explained in a follow up tweet that he has some health issues and doesn’t feel pain, that explains a lot. And he was asked to send his headset back to the factory for testing so I guess we won’t be seeing much of burned heads in the future.October 11, 2018 at 10:04 am #1907NickParticipant
