It’s sleek, it’s comfortable, and, most importantly, it costs just $200. Most VR systems cost at least $500.

The standalone device makes for a more seamless experience than the flagship Oculus Rift or other high-end VR systems. It doesn’t need cords, an expensive PC or a specific smartphone. The headset is made of a breathable mesh fabric, has a vibrant display and built-in speakers, so you don’t have to use headphones.

It even comes with a special eyeglasses spacer, so I could play comfortably with my glasses on. Soon, you will be able to order special prescription lenses for the headset for $80.

The interface is easy to use, even for someone who isn’t a frequent VR user like me. You can browse Facebook, watch 360-degree videos, play your favorite Netflix shows or buy 3D movies. Read more from…
