Samsung Gear VR — the Best in Virtual Reality in a Stellar

It wasn’t too long ago that I went to an aerospace museum and got to try out a virtual reality simulator.  It was about $20 for just 5 or 10 minutes, not too cheap but hey, it was virtual reality and by-far the richest simulator experience I’d ever had!  In no way did I feel as though I was looking at a screen, I felt as though I was really flying the plane and above me, with objects in motion on all sides.  I knew that the virtual reality industry was moving forward which makes perfect sense as it to me is completely synonymous with futuristic technology. I’m thrilled to have learned that this same technology is now available for everyday use, (and won’t cost me hundreds of dollars if I want to use it for an hour, which I definitely do)!

Samsung Mobile June

The timing couldn’t be better with Father’s Day right around the corner to pick up the Samsung Gear VR, which has Oculus and Samsung teaming up to bring the latest in virtual reality.  There are two things that I like best about this product.  For one, the technology is on another level.  It has amazing quality and is easy to connect to your Samsung Galaxy smart phone.  The second thing about this product that makes it a game changer  is the wide range of applications that it can be used for.  From full length movies to shows, games of course, live streaming games films and video clips, 1 million videos, and the exciting Twitch platform for gamers.  You can even view your own movie files. Also, the environments to choose from also vary and are customizable.

Right now you can even get the Samsung Gear VR absolutely free plus $50 of Virtual Reality content with purchase, or lease, and activation of select Samsung Smartphones.  That amazing deal is good 6/5-6/18 online or in Best Buy stores.  I know that personally I’d opt for some racing and flying virtual reality games, probably some of my favorite live music performances too as with Gear VR and the Oculus Video app you are put right in the middle of the action.

    The Samsung Gear VR would make for a great father’s day gift. I know my brother in law and my sons father would indeed love one of these because they are both gamers. Thanks for sharing the idea.

    I currently have the S5 and have been looking into getting the newest S7. The Samsung Gear is quite a bargain considering if you purchase it now you get it for free. Paycheck comes in tomorrow so we’ll see what we decide!
