I think they're like $40 an hour to rent, dude, and I'll bet none of your friends would recognize you.
Google Cardboard is like $20 and nobody cares. VR is a solution looking for a problem and always will be; it takes as its basis of understanding that humans perceive depth perception through binocular vision and we don't. we just don't. Binocular vision gives you depth perception up to the point where two-three inches of parallax accomplishes something; beyond that it's all relational and synthetic from head position.
VR has no effective solution to motion parallax and never will.
