Samsung Gear VR is a Samsung dive into virtual reality
I'm Scott Stein.
And guess what?
Samsung has gone into VR.
The Samsung Gear VR Headset works, was partnered with ocular technology to provide a virtual reality environment that's compatible with the new Samsung Note 4 phone.
Because it's got a higher resolution screen, 2560 x 1140.
And that enables crisper pixillation not as pixellated experience when you're wearing this.
And plunging yourself into VR all around you.
Plus that Snapdragon 805 processor.
It will only work with Samsung Note 4 for now.
And it runs off a mobile phone, as opposed to Project Morpheus and existing ocular headsets that go into PCs.
So what does that mean.
well right now the experiences we've seen are more about virtual experiences.
With a little bit of games.
We've taken a look at the Avengers and Iron Man lab.
We've taken a look at a Coldplay concert.
A virtual Safari tour.
And an experience were you're flying over landscapes.
And currently I'm in a spaceship in the middle of an asteroid belt.
With spaceships flying at me trying to kill me.
There is a touchpad on the side here along with a back button and volume button so you've got some element of control and of course accelerometer and all that.
And you can pop out the Note IV right at the top.
It's got focal adjustments on the front so if you where glasses like I do you can adjust the focus all the way up and ratchet it to fit without glasses.
So I'm wearing glasses right now and it does fit a little snuggly but fine.
That's Samsung Gear VR in a nutshell.
I'm Scott Stein and I'm i outer space at the moment.
