Make your world bigger
Samsung Gear VR¹ transforms virtual reality with a new handheld controller that seamlessly responds to organic, human movements in virtual experiences.² Every move, from turning and grabbing to pointing and lifting, is naturally connected from physical to virtual, making it more intuitive and spellbinding than ever before. Flying through the Alps, watching a film with a far-off friend, experiencing a festival across the globe, and employing the superpowers of your game’s character – your world just got infinitely bigger.
With a new Gear VR controller that’s right in the box, you can explore, game and navigate with organic movements. Drop, point, lift and move with total agility, and browse menus with more natural responsiveness.
Powered by Oculus
Oculus, the leader in virtual reality technology, regularly debuts new experiences like Hulu shows, guided meditations, language tutorials and hundreds more in their already massive VR store.
Jump straight into the action of your favorite game and start throwing, steering and aiming with the new incredibly responsive handheld controller. Fresh titles like A Night Sky and End Space, plus multi-player adventures are added all the time.
Explore thousands of exciting 360o experiences from Samsung VR’s premium video service. Lose yourself in street festivals around the world, snag front-row seats to a concert, or kayak through a protected rainforest. Plus, when you create stories of your own on Gear 360, you can upload and share them on Samsung VR.
