Samsung Gear VR has brought the future to 2016!
Every time I see a picture of the new Samsung Gear VR Series I can’t help but have a flash back to my favorite movie from the 80s Back to the Future. I remember thinking how cool it would be to have any of these things, especially the VR glasses, happen in my lifetime.
The future is here and Samsung is bringing it to us in 2016. Looking for a cozy night in on the couch with your favorite movie? Oculus and Samsung have you covered. You can stream Netflix, live stream your favorite games, the sky is the limit. With the Oculus App you can customize your experience. Use your own movie files. Customize your virtual environment — choose from a home theater, big-screen cinema or even the surface of the moon. Plus you can buy hundreds of full-length Hollywood movies and TV shows.
Your home entertainment experience is about to get supersized. Jurassic World Apatosaurus lets you wander through a prehistoric forest, so you can relish the sense of extraordinary wonder as you anticipate the approach of an Apatosaurus. I wish this would’ve been around when my son was little and was OBSESSED with dinosaurs. If you are a gamer get ready to have your mind blown. Steel Series Stratus XL Wireless Controller will take your gaming to the next level on your phone or tablet. Home and back buttons, plus analog joysticks, offer seamless integration with select Android and Windows systems. Not to mention the gaming experience is just elevated to a whole new level. EVE: Gunjack blasts you right into the middle of an epic space battle. Jump right in and fight as the action unfolds all around you. I haven’t been much of a gamer in the past few years because I can’t deal with the chatter in the background when you play on the game systems now but this would definitely bring me back into the fold.
It also has the Samsung Milk VR content that I just learned about this week. Bringing you amazing 360° virtual adventures, Samsung Milk VR is video like you’ve never seen. Surround yourself in all the action of the world’s fastest cars (like lapping the Le Mans track..), exotic destination – like getting lost in a redwood forest to an in-person encounter with sharks in a cage, live music performances, celebrity lives and seriously cool channels – for example the Gear Indie Channel. Get access to unique experiences through the eyes of indie filmmakers. This is serious technology. They went all out designing this.
So live stream your favorite games, short films and video clips in a virtual theater setting. Access more than 1 million Vimeo videos and Twitch, a leading video platform and community for gamers, there’s always something new to experience. The future is now and at your fingertips.
