VR headset prices high as Apple bides its time
Some of the headsets I used to try out these experiences cost almost twice as much as the smartphone we used to snap the photo above. Early headsets were renowned for being clunky and heavy, and many required tethering by cables to a high-end PC, powerful enough to process the graphics. These new headsets are comparatively lighter and far more portable. HTC's newer headsets come with a clever little bit of internal design - you can adjust the lenses to correct common vision impairments, which is good news for short-sighted people like me who do not enjoy wearing glasses and a headset at the same time. A word of warning though - I have come away from my week-long VR-fest with a spot of real-life conjunctivitis - so make sure those headsets get cleaned!
