Samsung has launched the new Gear VR Innovator Edition in Dubai, but hurry up kids, because there are only “limited quantities”.
But before you go racing out to get the latest Korean piece of kit, let us fill you in with what it’s all about:
Must Have Samsung Device
For those who like their reality to be virtual, and own a Samsung GALAXY Note 4, S6, or S6 Edge (it needs one of these slipped into it to operate), this headset is a must-buy.
At the moment, it would appear the Gear VR Innovator Edition is mainly going to find its niche in the world of gaming and entertainment, although Samsung do claim that going forward (once some decent app developers get to grips with it), there is huge potential for some practical applications too.
But for now, it’s all about immersing yourself in the action like never before. Samsung have teamed up with the Facebook Oculus Rift guys to come with this wearable gadget, and if you’ve seen any of the YouTube videos of the Oculus, you’ll know you should probably be around to catch the user when they completely lose their shit after five seconds.
Check out this video of some people losing grip on reality while wearing the Oculus Rift VR headset:
So you have real head movement, enabling you to discover worlds like you never knew you could, plus you can interact with your environment, and go to a virtual movie theatre to watch a wide screen version of your favourite film. Trust, it’s a cinema experience like no other.
What you waiting for then? The future’s made of virtual reality…
