In a recent End-Of-Year event, Virtunet’s partners and clients were introduced to the Samsung Gear VR, a mobile virtual reality device designed by Samsung Electronics in collaboration with Oculus VR.
This magnificent optical invention will take your video viewing experience to a whole new captivating level by launching you into an immersive virtual reality that features a 360-degrees surround viewing environment and lifelike vivid images!
It is fully compatible with the Samsung galaxy Note 4 or the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge smartphones, which acts as the Gear VR display & processing device, while the Gear VR unit itself is built-in with high-field of view lenses and a custom Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) to track and report the rotation within the display content connected from the tablet/phone via micro-USB.
The Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition, relaunched in 2015, features the best in virtual reality viewing.
Easy Control Touchpad
An easy-to-use deep touchpad gives the end-users a seamless control over the device for optimal interactivity.
The Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition’s ergonomic design is optimised for comfortable viewing for end-users, with easy-grip rear strap that distributes the weight of the headset evenly across the head for maximum comfort for longer viewing sessions.
Long Usage Time
The Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition is equipped with a Micro-USB port which can be powered directly using an external charger. The charger, which is sold separately, can be used to power up the Gear VR and the Samsung compatible device concurrently.
