Has the VR craze swept you up yet? (The 3:59, Ep. 297)

We talk all about Facebook's Oculus Connect event with special guest Scott Stein.


Virtual reality was one of the marquee tech trends of last year, but it's gone a little stale. 

Facebook is trying to shake that up with its Oculus Connect developer conference Wednesday. Special guest CNET editor Scott Stein and I talk about what it's going to take for virtual reality to be something anyone would want -- and not just hardcore tech enthusiasts and early adopters. 

Facebook seems to be heading in the right direction, unveiling the Oculus Go, a $199 VR headset that doesn't need a PC or phone or annoying cables. It's coming next year, and marks one of the cheapest way to try VR (remember, that cheap Gear VR headset requires an expensive phone to run). 

The 3:59 gives you bite-size news and analysis about the top stories of the day, brought to you by the CNET News team in New York and producer Bryan VanGelder.

Check out the extended shows on YouTube.
