Thoughts on the Samsung Gear VR
“You won’t believe how good mobile VR is until you try it!”
2014 has been a really exciting in the world of VR- games, experiences, headsets and conferences left, right and centre.
This month was no exception with Samsung revealing the Gear VR at their Unpacked event in Berlin. The virtual reality headset is the first “mobile” head device to be announced and is compatible with the Galaxy Note 4 which was announced alongside.
Oculus and Samsung have come together to create this great VR headset. The partnership has allowed them to advance mobile technology by combining creative and technical minds. You truly “won’t believe how good mobile VR is until you try it!”
The headset works by slotting the Note 4 into the front of the headset to be used as a portable VR screen, allowing you to be immersed in a 96 degree angle viewing experience. Just think, you’ll be able to experience great VR games and applications just as easy as checking your news feed on Twitter! With a simple touch pad and button on the side and use of tilt sensors to track your head movements- this device provides accessible virtual reality at your fingertips. Now, who doesn’t want that?
Patrick, CEO here at nDreams, is extremely enthusiastic about being involved with the Samsung Gear VR “We’re incredibly excited about the Gear VR- it’s an amazing piece of hardware offering deep immersive virtual reality whilst being wireless and powered by simply plugging in your mobile phone”.
“We’re proud to be supporting the Gear VR from day one with two unique titles, and we have more innovative projects on the way. nDreams will be supporting Samsung and Oculus strongly as we continue to increase the number of titles we publish”.
Gunner is a great arcade style shooter game experience- by using the Gear VR you will join the fight as a gunner and unite to destroy the threat against humanity. This is a controller- free experience making it accessible and ideal for anyone. All you have to do is pop on your Gear VR headset and ‘aim for victory’.
Then when you are done with saving the galaxy, you can switch over to a completely different VR experience- Perfect Beach. Everyone dreams of escaping to remote island somewhere, away from work and everyday stresses.- well this can finally become a daily treat, when you sit back and relax on your perfect beach.
You can get your hands on this great new device late on this year alongside both our titles. We can’t wait for the Gear VR to be available for everyone to get their hands on.
