Nokia has announced it is scrapping its virtual reality camera Ozo, two years after its release.

The camera was aimed at “professional creators”, and cost $60,000 (£46,000) when it launched in 2015.

A second generation version called Ozo+ came out this year, and was originally priced at $45,000 (£34,000) but recently dropped its price to $25,000 (£19,000), reports the BBC.

The tech company has said in a statement that it will now focus its efforts on health tech products.
