Just wanted to spread the word as it has claimed two dk2s already.

Its like putting an ant under a microscope, you'll burn the screen.

Even for a short amount of time, so please, be careful with your rifts!

Rift on! :D

    ....?


    The screen is used in phones and is outside constantly. Why is this a problem?

    It is not a problem for phones because they don't have two wacking great lenses which focus and direct light in front of them. :lol:

    Yep... the lenses are the problem. People should be really careful. If the place where you store you your rift is subject to sunlight, make sure you leave it facing the other way (lenses facing a wall, for instance).
