Amazon for much less.
You're not out of the woods yet, as you will still need a Samsung V6, or Samsung Edge Smart Phone to go with your peripheral device. Prices range from 500$ - 600$
So why spend up to 800$ on this junk? Well because it's far from junk. This is by far the cheapest route to go to experience fully immersive virtual reality. Photo and Video apps will put you right in the middle of places from around the globe.
Ever wanted to visit Time Square? Ever wanted to be inside of your favorite video game? Well with the Samsung Gear VR you can do just that.
There are new and exciting Virtual Reality Experiences being uploaded to the Oculus Rift store every day of the week. This is the main menu experience that gets you from point A to point B. And is kind of like your Home Base once behind the Goggles. Most Apps are completely free and also have detailed reviews and also give a general comfort level to Users. Virtual Reality is so immersive that sometimes seeing yourself moving inside VR when you are actually not moving in Real Life, can cause some people to feel slightly nauseated.
If you already have the Samsung Galaxy S6 or the Edge, then Virtual reality is a no-brainer for you.
If not then you are Under $1,000 away from experiencing things you would never be able to otherwise.
Amazing Digital 360 degree rendered photos by amazing digital artists from all over the world, viewed from inside the GEAR, is enough to make the purchase worth it. As all these photos are free to view and are updated monthly. I have been looking through them for a couple weeks now and have yet to come close to seeing them all. With roughly 50 of them saved in my favorites list for quick retrieval later.
Titans of Space, a digital representation of our Solar system, gives you a real view of what the sun looks like in relation to the Earth and other planets from the view of space. And what the largest sun in our Galaxy looks like in relation to our sun. Dwarfing it as it is roughtly 1.7million times larger. A breath taking experience to say the least. Completely free to download in the Oculus Rift store.
