At a recent Developer Conference from Samsung, the big S unveiled the Gear VR Innovator Edition. As you can see, it looks a lot like the Oculus Rift that I was raving about so much at PAXPrime this year.
The GEAR VR Innovator is powered by Oculus, but it does not have its own screen. It is made to pair with the Galaxy Note 4, and it is made for the smartphone’s 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display. It is designed to watch content in 360 degrees, and there will be a lot of content for it.
For example, there plans to be a videos for Tony Star’s Lab from the next Avengers movie. There is also DreamWorks VR video with the popular Dreamworks characters, a Cirque du Soleil media production, and a Harmonix Music review.
There really is something interesting going on with this product, and I honestly hope that I can try it out for myself someday. Perhaps at the next CES, or something.
