One of the biggest tech innovations here to take home entertainment to the next level is Virtual Reality.  Between the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and the Playstation VR coming out this fall, it seems like VR isn't a fad; it's here to stay.

But did you know you don't have to spend tons of money to get the VR experience?  Thanks to affordable headsets like Google Cardboard and Merge VR, you can use your phone to power VR without spending hundreds of dollars.

Apps like Cedar Point VR and Zombie Shooter VR are not only free, but fun.  And even YouTube has an entire section dedicated to 360-degree and VR videos.

Of course, what matters is what every day people think about this technology, so we had Veda Loca head out to the streets and let people try out the Merge VR.

The response was overwhelmingly positive with most people saying they would buy one, now that they've tried it.  So, if you want to join the new VR world, just grab a headset and get your phone out and start downloading.
