The HTC Vive is without doubt, one of the best virtual reality experiences we've ever tried.
Soon it'll be available to the public for the eye-watering price of £689.
What's important though is that HTC's virtual reality headset isn't the only one. There's Samsung's Gear VR, a £80 headset that when paired with a Samsung smartphone becomes a portable virtual reality headset. Price for the Gear VR and a compatible Samsung phone? Around £700-800.
Unsurprisingly these high costs have not gone down so well with the general public. As technology becomes smaller, cheaper and more advanced the assumption is that a groundbreaking new product should cost less?
So are gadgets like virtual reality really that expensive?
Well we looked at some of the recent technology launches including Blu-ray, VHS and Plasma and worked out how much they would have cost (with inflation adjusted) if they launched today.
