Samsung held an event at the Digicel IMAX to introduce us to the Gear VR. The IMAX venue was chosen because like IMAX, the Gear VR aims to create an immersive and compelling viewing experience. Among guests at the event was representatives from TDC. TDC is interested in creating virtual experiences to promote our tourism.
The Gear VR headset is ergonomic and works with the S6. It provides a 96 degree viewing angle. Great for movies and games. I was able to try it out myself. You navigate and select menu options using a touch pad on the right side. Focus is controlled by a dial at the top. Combine it with your favorite headphones to enhance your experience.
The demo left me wanting to experience more. The Gear VR would be available at the Samsung Experience stores to try out. Here are my photos from the event.
