Samsung Gear VR's controller shoots 'em upGood news: the new accessory will work with old Gear VRs.
Samsung's new Gear VR headset for 2017 looks almost identical to last year's model. But this time, it comes bundled with a controller. The controller has a clickable touchpad, a trigger for selecting or shooting, and a bunch of buttons that let you adjust the volume or go home or back. That means you can point and select, drag and drop objects and shoot them up. It connects over Bluetooth to this new Gear VR headset. But also to earlier Gear VR models. And yes, you will be able to buy it separately as well. One thing you'll notice about the controller is that it's small and easy to hold in one hand. Will dress me to spend some time playing games and navigating experiences to see how much more or less immersive the controller could be. You'll still be able to use the headset's track pads and buttons to navigate virtual world the controller just gives you far more options while exploring this worlds And it's more intuitive to use. If you've ever fumbled around for buttons near your head, you'll agree with me, intuitive is a good thing. [MUSIC]
