Virtual reality is the coming thing but the thing about this thing is that things are expensive. And things. Translation: Getting a foot in the VR door could cost you. Which is why the likes of Google have created Cardboard, a low-cost VR headset that uses a smartphone as a display. And it looks like Microsoft is following suit, with the Microsoft VR Kit (pictured above).

Details are scarce, as Microsoft haven’t made their VR Kit all that official as yet. But it’s set to make an appearance at a Russian hackathon which is taking place in October this year.

What that might mean is that the Microsoft VR Kit could be a low-tech entry to their October Windows 10 event as well. It’d be cool enough seeing Microsoft coming up with a Windows Phone virtual reality solution that can be printed or made at home. Virtual reality should be easy to get in to. For every price point.
