Making the virtual feel natural
The Samsung Gear Virtual Reality Headset and Controller ensures your virtual interactions are as close to real life movement as possible. The headset itself has three built-in sensors: a gyro sensor, accelerometer, and a proximity sensor. These maintain accurate and precise head-tracking, so every little movement is replicated in the virtual world. Along with the improved movement tracking, the headset has a wider lens, with an impressive 101o field of view, allowing you to see every angle, no matter what position you’re in.
A new perspective
The Samsung Gear offers you new perspective in the world of virtual reality. With over 600 available apps through Google Play, and more constantly being created, you will always have something new to explore and interact with. The Samsung Gear is designed for use with smartphones with five to six inch screens, and high resolution displays. Galaxy phones are an ideal match for this headset, and your phone will be perfectly secure in the front of the set, allowing you to move, jump or dance as freely as you want while wearing it.
As well as the vast library of downloadable apps, Samsung Gear VR also allows you to connect with friends, family and colleagues no matter where in the world they are with Oculus. The Oculus platform is a radical invention of digital entertainment. Whatever you might dream about doing, Oculus will find a way to let you realise it. Experiences that cannot be achieved in the real world are made easy in the virtual world, whether it be exploring a venture of human flight, or travelling through space to play with the friend at the other side of the world.
Innovative, ergonomic design
The new Samsung Gear Headset and Controller has been ergonomically designed to ensure optimum comfort and total efficiency. The headset itself is more lightweight than the previous model, and features foam cushioning which has a natural hold, and blocks out light to prevent visual interference. It has an adjustable headband with a strap holder for extra flexibility and comfort. The cushioned face-pad is suitable for any facial structure, so everyone can experience the virtual world through Samsung Gear. The headset has data storage ports for both Micro USB and USB-C, making it easy to save your gameplay, live events, and virtual tours to an external source.
The Samsung Gear Controller has been designed to be as versatile as you are, and then some. It has on-board controls which allows you to move through your virtual worlds with ease. The gear controller also has a trigger button, situated on the underside of pad. The button is highly versatile so can be used for a range of functions, dependent on what virtual media you’re using. The Samsung Gear Virtual Reality Headset and Controller is the ideal companion for any virtual world. Whether it is gaming, world conferences or music concerts, the Gear brings you into the forefront of the action, wherever you may be.
