Virtual reality: Hype or the real deal? (The 3:59, Ep 7)

The 3:59 podcast digs deep into whether virtual reality is worth the money for average folks.

Everyone is talking about virtual reality.

It was all over CES. It was the talk of Mobile World Congress. And it will dominate next week's Game Developers Conference.

Demonstrations of virtual reality have wowed nearly every soul who has tried it, but is it really for the average person?

Joining me today is CNET's resident virtual reality guru, Scott Stein, to help break down the VR hype. That includes who should invest in a VR system and who should stay away. There is also the related issue of when virtual reality isn't actually VR, but 360 degree video -- basically VR's equivalent of the "hoverboard" terminology dilemma.

The 3:59 gives you bite-size news and analysis about the top stories of the day, brought to you by CNET Executive Editor Roger Cheng and CNET Senior Writer Ben Fox Rubin.
