Samsung Gear VR virtual reality headset available now

December 9, 2014 by Tom in Accessories, Hardware News, Samsung with No Comments.

Samsung has made its Gear VR virtual reality headset available at the user-friendly price of $200. As this is burgeoning tech there are a few caveats: you'll need a Note 4 Smartphone to hook into it as its screen and it's sold as the "Innovator Edition", the product description of which hammers home the fact it's "a device targeted specifically to developers or early adopters of technology." If you're curious and have the right phone, $200 isn't too big a wad to drop on something potentially really cool, especially if you're looking to pioneer VR tech and make your own projects.
