We picked up a Samsung Gear VR for Xmas and it is pretty awesome! It seems 2016 will be the year of Virtual Reality since there are a couple different companies expecting to release their versions of virtual reality headsets. Oculus Rift, Sony Playstation VR, HTC Vive Pre, and the Microsoft Hololens are just a few that come to mind. I’m excited for Sony’s VR since I have a PS4.
I wasn’t sure what to expect with the Samsung Gear VR, but I was pleasantly surprised. My first time using it I kept saying “omg this is so cool!!!”, and must have looked like a complete dork. Most of the stuff I’ve tried so far were less interactive and more like watching (or walking/moving within) a really cool 3d 360 movie. It’s kind of one of those things you really have to just experience for yourself because words just can’t describe the experience. I just can’t wait to see how it’s implemented with the Playstation. So excited! But not excited about the price tag. Any of you have the Samsung Gear VR? Leave a comment and share your experience. I haven’t used the Gear VR much. I just got my phone (Samsung 6Edge) fixed so I can actually use the headset more.
