But if the app is done well(I'm sure more will come out as time passes) it is quite effective, got this new roller-coaster app that got few peeps in my family dizzy

All in all if you, its a piece of cardboard with lenses so its not perfect, but is probably the cheapest way to get a feel for what this VR deal is all about.
