(54)CLEANING AND DISINFECTING CRADLE FOR VIRTUAL REALITY VISORS


(57) This invention relates to a cleaning and disinfecting cradle for virtual reality visors. Previously, visors were cleaned between uses by a human attendant wiping the visor with an alcohol wipe, which was prone to human error. Embodiments of the present invention use a chamber having an inner volume sufficient to accommodate the headset. A power supply may be coupled to the chamber. An ultraviolet (UV) light source may be coupled to the power supply. The UV light source is disposed to shine UV light onto a surface of the headset configured for placement against a face of a user to destroy bacteria and viruses on the surface.
