Podcast: Amy Hedrick: “The Straightforward Solution of Cleanbox Technologies”

In The Press

Amusement Park Daily, November 2019

Featured Article

"Cleanbox was designed around the unique surfaces of VR and AR headsets to provide maximum efficacy in cleaning and drying for hardware that lives on a consumer's face and head. Our nanocoatings help keep sweat and oils from permeating the softer surfaces of an HMD (velcro, foam, rubber, fabric) and reduce the residue of makeup, fingerprints, and dirt.

Intergame Online, October 2019

Featured Article

"Thanks to a saturated market, HMDs have quickly caught up to many of the performance standards they need in order to work well with active content and longer play-time, multiplayer experiences. Headset makers still need to make the HMDs more comfortable and address issues such as flexible

fitting for different nose sizes and smaller heads, and weight balance. The goal is to have these in place by the time the price point softens to consumer levels.”

-Amy Hedrick

Co-Founder & CEO, Cleanbox Technology

Intergame, March 2019 (Feature Article)


“While gameplay and technological advancements are worth talking about, hygiene has often been an after-thought for public-facing use of immersive technologies and one of the biggest barriers to access for VR. Cleanbox Technology has gone a long way toward addressing the issues of decontamination, smell prevention and drying of head mounted displays between users. The product solves many related trickle-down challenges…”
