Father’s Day is right around the corner. I mean, literally, peeking at us from less than 2 days away. Have you gotten the card? Have you gotten the gift? Yeah, me neither. I often find myself in a conundrum when working out what to get Thomas, which is why I interviewed him recently to find out his preferences. But, I know I can never go wrong with tech gear. He loves gaming, whether handheld or console or computer, and he loves playing with his phone. So when I discovered I could move him into the world of virtual reality, well, that pretty much answered the question for me.
What IS Gear VR?
Virtual reality. It looks cool in the movies and on TV. It’s a real rush of adrenaline when you’ve experienced it at a fair or an amusement park. You can take yourself on a journey you’ve never been or play that game you love, way up close and personal. But, is the reality of virtual reality really all that cool?
You can be right in the middle of your favorite games, watch a movie BY YOURSELF, socialize with friends, hang with celebrities, join in epic battles. And all you have to do to get started is snap your Samsung Galaxy phone onto the Gear VR.
Developed in partnership with Oculus, the Gear VR is portable, comfortable to wear and easy to set up. Using the Oculus video app, you can:
- customize trailers, clips and movie files
- buy hundreds of movies and/or TV shows
- customize the virtual environment, ranging from a home theater, big-screen cinema or even the surface of the moon.
Live stream your favorite games, short films and video clips in a virtual theater setting. With full access to more than 1 million Vimeo videos and Twitch, a leading video platform and community for gamers, there’s always something new to experience.
