The VERGE- The rEvolve Strap is a janky way to make the HTC Vive better
The rEvolve is a replacement strap for the Vive that basically does three things: makes it more comfortable and easier to use, improves the field of view, and lets you flip it up without taking the whole thing off your head.

TAMPA BAY NEWSWIRE- SynergyWiz Launches “rEvolve”
...rEvolve is a rigid head strap that easily replaces the current straps on the Vive. It takes the weight of the Vive off the user’s face and rests it gently on the user’s forehead. It achieves a perfectly centered balance to the headset by shifting almost all the weight of the rEvolve towards the back of the head. This provides a magical feeling of a weightless screen hovering right in front of the user’s face.
...rEvolve adds additional features not seen in consumer VR headsets to date. Most notably among them is rEvolve’s flip up display that allows the Vive to be flipped up at a moment’s notice, revealing the real world without the user having to remove the headset. Other notable features of rEvolve include headphones that now sit just outside the user’s ears and thinner padding around the eyes that increase the user’s field of view.
