Samsung Gear VR

Samsung Gear VR finally available on Best Buy this Friday

Virtual reality is still relatively new. It may not be mainstream yet but there is certainly a market for it. Just recently, Samsung showed us how the Gear VR helped a father see birth of his child virtually---somewhat telling us that the headset has a great purpose. The South Korean giant is still working on making it work with other units like the upcoming Galaxy Note 5. Soon, this virtual reality gaming headset will be consumer-ready too.

Samsung Gear VR helps father see birth of child virtually

This may be too melodramatic for you but Samsung has perfectly shown us how virtual reality could bring people together even though they are on different places at a given time. With the use of Samsung Gear VR, offshore-based Jason of Queensland, Australia was able to witness the birth of his third child in Perth. The father was 4,000 kilometers away from his pregnant wife Allison and two kids but Samsung brought them together virtually.

Divergent: Insurgent experience coming to a Samsung VR Gear near you

The Divergent book series, together with Hunger Games, has helped herald a new age of dystopian YA fever into the pop culture consciousness. The second installment of the movie franchise is still a month away, but to help hype up excitement for it, a four minute video is coming your way through Samsung's Gear VR headset by the end of the month. That is, if you're anywhere near the places where the Insurgent: Shattered Reality experience will go on tour.

Samsung Gear VR now available at Best Buy, sort of

Good news: The Samsung Gear VR, that wonder toy that brings virtual reality to the masses (well, at least those who own a Samsung Galaxy Note 4), is now out to market and available at Best Buy. Bad news: the Gear VR "Innovator Edition" is just available via the online store, so buying this VR headset is still a very Internet-driven process. But at the very least, it is now within the grasp of the consumers out there and no longer just a pipe dream.

Enjoy virtual reality with Samsung’s Milk for its Gear VR

Virtual reality headsets may not have caught on yet in terms of wearable purchases, but it doesn't mean that we are any less fascinated by it. Samsung is banking on this interest by releasing the Milk VR app which gives access to 360-degree video files to users of their Gear VR. If rumors are to be believed, the video collection will also soon be available for other VR devices as well.

Temple Run VR for Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition now ready

We already know that one of the first few games being prepped for the Samsung Gear VR is Imangi Studio's Temple Run VR. The game is finally available for the Innovator Edition of the wearable gaming headset. Game is free to download so be prepared for some endless running and experience a thrilling journey of the arctic wilderness. It's the first of its kind for the virtual gaming headset but we don't doubt more similar games would soon be developed.
