This is an incredibly unpleasant feeling when a thrilling VR experience is destroyed by a stain or dust on your optical lens. Instead of reaching for any cloth and hoping for the best, use LensPen — a solution designed to remove stains from AR and VR headsets.
The company seeks to provide VR players and technical enthusiasts with access to similar technology that photographers and drone pilots used for their own lenses. Photographers are particularly inclined to invest in some kind of cleaning solution to keep their devices in excellent condition. Something that they are photographing at the moment can be destroyed without a clean lens and take up additional post-production work, when all that was needed was a tool like LensPen.
PSVR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Valve Index users can have one solution at home, while Oculus Quest owners and owners of other stand-alone VR solutions must constantly have something cleansing with them.
Lenspen operates on two levels. You use a retractable brush to remove dust, and then, after twisting the cap from the other end, you use the carbon scrubber tip to remove smears, stains, fingerprints, etc. It can be used on any optical lens, LCD, plasma , and the glass surfaces are safe and the company guarantees at least 500 cleanings in a pen without a shelf life for the device.
The LensPen form factor may be ideal for people who are used to doing everything on the go. It also does not require refueling with any kind of liquid. The company already cooperates with Sony, Nikon and Panasonic, so it is not surprising that VR and AR companies are also developing relationships with it.
If you are interested in one of the LensPen sets or you use micro-cloth for something like a set of binoculars, you can find various options on the official LensPen website.
