Occulus VR and others have been trying to make VR popular again and they've done so with minor success. Now it looks like Samsung is planning on joining the bandwagon with their "Gear VR" and I can't say that I'm impressed. I don't see how VR will enhance our lives when you can usually go experience what your are just simulating. What are your thoughts? VR good, or bad?
Instead of making a completely standalone virtual reality headset, Samsung has developed a modular design, which allows the user to dock in a Galaxy device into the Gear VR using USB 3.0. Virtual reality effect is achieved through head tracking, and instead of equipping the headset with sensors, Gear VR makes use of the smartphone’s accelerometer, gyroscope and processing power to track head motion. Also, as Samsung’s flagship devices use AMOLED display technology, we can surely say that users will have an excellent, flawless and immersive virtual reality experience.
