SAMSUNG GEAR VR 2
Powered using Samsung Galaxy smartphones, Samsung Gear VR effectively splits the phone screen in two to create 3D visuals, making it affordable, wire-free virtual reality.
Lacking the power of a high-spec PC, Gear VR is a natural home for 360° video (passive content) or semi-active experiences that require moving the head to hotspots, rather than hugely interactive projects.
Originally launched in 2013, the Gear VR is the go-to VR platform for many – it’s largely understood by the public and a large number of experiences already exist for it. This has been widened by a partnership with Facebook, bringing the Oculus VR store to the platform.
A recent upgrade to the headset has improved the size of the lenses to widen the field of view, making the Gear VR’s experiences feel more immersive than the original launch model. Price: £100.
