    Won’t catch on unless the price comes closer to $100. VR is this decades version of 3D TV’s. Cool tech that nobody will use on a regular basis.

      Exactly 100% what I was saying when a year ago every other article was VR related. No one cares except a few nerds.

      Oculus Go is a standalone VR headset that is going to sell at $199. It has a QHD (2560×1440) LCD display. I just wish they would have put a n AMOLED display on board instead of an LCD display. But I guess they did that to get the price down.

      As far as getting it down to $100 for a standalone VR headset. I don’t see that happening anytime soon. Especially when you need RAM, CPU, GPU, storage, wifi, Bluetooth, accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnometer, and 3 degrees of freedom controller with the same accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnometer.

      Clearly I do know what it takes, but that doesn’t change the fact that the regular joe on the street isn’t going to drop over $100 for this fad. That was my point.
