Virtual Reality has been touted as the next big thing by tech bloggers and industry leaders. The tech industry is making big bets on its future, including Facebook's $2 billion acquisition of Oculus, the makers of the Oculus Rift headset, the device which basically sparked this latest VR craze.
Now everyone wants a piece of the pie, from mobile efforts like Google's new Daydream technology, to Sony's just-released PlayStation VR.
There's just one problem: VR is a gimmick, and not even a very good gimmick. It's also prohibitively expensive, even at the lower end.
