Time Magazine has posted its annual list of best inventions of the year, with Sony's PlayStation VR making the cut in part for its relatively affordable nature.
"In order to access the most cutting-edge virtual reality, people typically have to shell out thousands of dollars--not just for a headset (like the $800 HTC Vive), but for a computer that's powerful enough to support it," Time magazine reported. "Sony's PlayStation VR, by contrast, is designed to work with a console that millions of people already own: the PlayStation 4."
PSVR goes for $400 by itself, though, as mentioned, it also requires a PS4 ($300 and up) and a PlayStation Camera.
Other inventions that made Time's list this year included Hmbldt Vape Pens and Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 shoes, which tie themselves.
