THE FUTURE IS IN VR
Among the standard device updates, perhaps the most interesting product out of the Samsung stable to keep it at the forefront of mobile innovation is the Gear VR.
The result of a deep and integrated partnership with Oculus, Samsung was able to deliver the first widely available mobile virtual reality (VR) headset that is optimized for use exclusively with the GALAXY Note 4 as its display. And with the increased resolution of the Note 4, it is one of the sharpest, most vivid VR displays available today.
Unlike the Oculus Rift though, the Gear VR requires no tethering of wires and connection to a computer. You just slot the GALAXY Note 4 in front of the dual-lenses and it will deliver the processing and display features.
Navigating the interface and features is mainly done with head movements, taps on the trackpad and back button on the right side of the Gear VR.
At press time, the Gear VR provides a choice of four scenarios: VR Cinema, VR Games, 360-degree video and educational/experimental content. VR Cinema allows you to watch a play in 3D-like environments where you can explore the theatre by turning your head in different directions. You also can pilot a space craft through an asteroid field and take on enemy targets in VR Games.
