Have you ever visited the Masai Tribe in Kenya or even a jungle infested with prehistoric creatures? Welcome to the world of mobile virtual reality with the Samsung Gear VR. The headset converts Samsung’s latest Galaxy smartphones into a full-on mobile virtual reality headset where you can play amazing games, watch Hollywood’s best movies in your own private cinema, socialize with friends new and old, be at the center of a suspense thriller, and so much more. The Gear VR drops you right into the action—and it’s only from Samsung & Oculus.
Built with soft, flexible cushioning and lightweight materials, the Samsung Gear VR is comfortable to wear. It is completely wireless, so users can be fully engaged in virtual worlds without being tethered to a computer. With a robust selection of optimized virtual reality content from a wide range of top-tier creators, users will be able to enjoy a wide range of film, gaming, 360 degree video, and educational/experiential content.
Its simple interface makes getting started relatively easy. Once your phone is docked in the headset, the Oculus app will be initiated. You will be in the startup screen where you can look around in 360 degrees and use the buttons at the side of the unit to select your preference. Alternatively, you can use a Bluetooth controller for a more traditional approach. Grab a pair of good headphones and you’re in the action.
Make sure you’re in an open and safe location before jumping into your VR experience. We don’t want you knocking over anything.
