With Father’s Day fast approaching, I’ve found something perfect for the dads who LOVE to be on top of the latest tech gear. Thanks to Best Buy for sponsoring this post about the Samsung Gear VR.
One week from now, families everywhere will be honoring the dads in their life. There will be hugs, kisses and plenty of gifts. Ahhhhh, the gifts. If it’s one thing I know, dads tend to like staying on top of the latest and greatest gadgets. And I have one that will impress!
The Samsung Gear VR!
What exactly is the Samsung Gear VR? Great question – I had to do some research myself to see what it was all about!
Think of the Samsung Gear VR as mobile virtual reality. Go where you’ve never been able to go before, a virtual world, but one that is completely portable.
Though it sounds complicated, it’s as easy as snapping a Galaxy smartphone into your Samsung Gear VR. Partnering with Oculus, Samsung made the Gear VR completely portable and simple. Is it comfortable to wear? From what I’m reading it is! I’ll be heading to Best Buy this week to check it out myself – I’m intrigued!
Think of the fun……..
Using the Oculus Video app, you can customize your virtual environment — choose from a home theater, big-screen cinema or even the surface of the moon.
- Buy hundreds of full-length Hollywood movies and TV shows
- Live stream your favorite games, short films and video clips in a virtual theater setting. (FYI…you have full access to more than 1 million Vimeo videos and Twitch, a leading video platform and community for gamers)
FUN –> Jurassic World Apatosaurus lets you wander through a prehistoric forest.
FUN –>A cozy sofa. Your favorite flicks. Netflix for Gear VR sweeps you away to a virtual living room for the ultimate watching experience.
The possibilities are endless!
