In direct competition to the new Deluxe Audio Strap that HTC announced, there is a new Kickstarter for a Vive strap that moves the weight of the Vive from the face to the forehead and adds a flip up display. The Kickstarter page is here (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1552002329/revolve-for-vive), I would be interested to hear people’s thoughts on this.

I would love to try out both straps before deciding which one is best. The current strap could use some modifications as it's quite difficult to get a good comfortable fit at the moment.

Good luck to them! If they're smart, they'll drop by and tell us more in person.
Reasonable Kickstarter goal too - $85 doesn't seem like a crazy amount for a headset strap. (I have no idea what the Deluxe Audio Strap is going to retail for, btw.)
Anything that makes VR easier or more accessible to all is a good thing!

Thanks, I wouldn't say we are smart, but we do appriciate fellow VR fan feedback. Which there has been a TON of on the Vive subreddit today. (https://www.reddit.com/r/Vive/comments/5n4ypn/revolve_kickstarter_launched_takes_vives_weight/)
If you or anyone else in the Viveport community have any questions please do not hesitiate to ask.
