VR headsets have been in the news a lot of late with the major purchase of the Oculus Rift VR headset and talk of Sony Project Morpheus. The problem with those two VR headsets is that they are very expensive. An Oculus Rift will set you back around $350 and when it gets old, you need to spend that much again to upgrade.

A new VR headset has turned up in Europe called the Virzzmo. Rather than being an actual headset like the Oculus, this device is a harness system for your head that will hold your smartphone in front of your face. It doesn't only hold your smartphone in front of your face, it also has some optical lenses inside that can turn what you see into stereoscopic 3D.

The Virzzmo will work with any smartphone that has a 4.7-inch or larger screen. The gyroscope inside the smartphone is also used for head tracking. One of the best things about the Virzzmo headset is that it is very cheap with a price of €50. Development kits are expected to land in June.
