Daydream View from Google uses magnesium heat pipes


According to a report from AndroidHeadlines.com, Google is officially moving forward with its new Daydream View virtual reality (VR) headset that promises improved features and, of interest to coolingZONE readers, also uses magnesium heat pipes to cool the device when connected to a smartphone.

The report said, “In addition to the new wider field of view and high-performance lenses, Google has also improved the flap where you situate your phone when placing it in the headset, making it more grippy so the phone stays in place better, and it added magnesium heat pipes inside this flap to act as a heat sink that Google boasts will help the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL run apps without heat issues, which was a common problem with the original Pixel phones and the first Daydream View headset that were launched last year, often getting hot after using it for a certain amount of time.”

 

According to the Google website, the Daydream View is also made with a breathable fabric that helps keep the headset light and also comfortable for users. A recent blog post about Google VR, indicated that the Daydream View is due out at some point in 2017.
