Virtual reality doesn’t taste like Cardboard | BetaBoston

Final paragraphs from a VR reality check

"Will we buy VR systems? The fate of Microsoft’s Kinect system provides a sobering hint. Kinect costs just $150 and lets users control games with voice and body movements. Yet only a handful of major games are Kinect-compatible, and sales of the device have slumped. So who’s up for the much bigger investment in a VR rig? Yeah, me neither.

A few virtual reality companies will prosper; there are enough hard-core gamers to guarantee that. But for most of us, gadgets like Cardboard are as close to virtual reality as we’re likely to get. And after a week or two, even Cardboard will end up in a drawer, next to those unused 3D glasses."
