    I like how pretensions we have become as a species. A temporary mark on my face from wearing an HMD? NO THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.

    Yeah, if you're stupid and don't adjust it properly, this could happen.

    They should do a follow up article on glass-rash and show photos of the little dents that the pads on glasses make in your nose.

    I should have taken some pictures of my 'DK2 Face' after hours in Elite.  Looks exactly the same as a day of skiing with goggles on.

    Perhaps they've never seen Velcro before, and they didn't realize the fit was adjustable.  :smile:

    "Rift rash"? Really? I suppose next they'll come up with a name for the mark your socks leave on your ankles. Beware leg ligatures!
    Not a Rift fanboi. Not a Vive fanboi. I'm a VR fanboi. Get it straight.

    To be fair, a lot of people don't know how to properly fit a a hat or clothes either, isn't the thing adjustable? Just loosen it instead of making all VR owners look like we're ridiculous.

    Well it is a UK article, perhaps the whole VR thingy-ma-bobby is just to futurey for them.

    That is a ridiculous comment. Are you even aware of how many "futurey" (Think you mean futuristic btw) inventions and innovations have come from the U.K? Maybe google it, I think you'll be shocked if you think the U.K is some ass - backwards hurdy gurdy country. (two for starters: the inventor of the world wide web you are currently using, and the inventor of the TV you are probably watching later.. oh and the jet engine... and... etc)

    It's better to say it's a Daily Mail article, one of the shittiest rags on the planet. They'll make a mountain out of any molehill.

    However, in fairness, many have commented on this already and I wonder if the design (spring loaded arms) is and having to have it so tight (having to by many accounts not just user error) and a too thin face gasket is the cause.

    As far as I know nobody has reported this for the Vive, and I've never had it on DK2, at least not like that. It doesn't look like it's fading in mere seconds.

    Still, that UK comment is out of order, and ignorant
