VR headsets like Vive and Oculus Rift are respectively priced around $800 and $600, however the Lenovo VR that was featured at CES 2017 is said to retail for just $400.
In addition to being substantially more affordable than its competitors, the headsets are more lightweight and comfortable than many of the other models that have been seen in the past. The company manages this by covering the inside of the device with soft modular padding that doesn't put unnecessary pressure on one's face.
In addition, Lenovo VR has an knob that allows it to be easily adjusted to ensure the perfect fit. Built for the Windows Holographic, a mixed-reality platform that will reportedly become widely available in 2017, the Lenovo VR is one of the fist of its kind.
