VR

Anyone ever tried VR? I just bought a gear VR headset for my S7, and I got to admit, it was one of those 'blown away' moments for me. Considering this is running off a mobile phone, it's jaw dropping.


If anyone has a galaxy s6 upwards, or galaxy note 5, I'd totally recommend it. Best £70 on tech in ages.


Oculus software, Samsung hardware.


I can only imagine the Oculus Rift being so much better. This is surely the way ahead...

We have a couple sets here at work. one of the departments here develop models of buildings that you can 'walk around' and it is impressive. (I work for a company that has a consultancy department for leading architects that use them) but they are ridiculously expensive. I would be intrigued to see the quality of the ones you have, I have only heard good things about them.


A few of my mates also did VR game testing for a company, and they were all blown away. Although all of them said after a short period of time it gives you the feeling of motion sickness, if they can fix that (it may be a case of getting use to it) then the VR gaming world would take off even more.

The overall resolution isn't great, but good for such a device, but it's the sheer sense of scale it brings, and how immersive it genuinely makes you feel. Honestly, I couldn't recommend one enough if you have a compatible phone!

Went to a gaming bar in Cornwall that had an Occulus for people to try. Like you I was blown away by it.. I don't think I was expecting a lot but it's unbelievably immersive! :D


I tried a few games but the 'Experience' that's always stayed with me was a simple rollercoaster simulation. I was sitting on a bar stool, with this ridiculous headset on and he started the video; which was little more than roller coaster tycoon graphics.. However that didn't stop my stomach from flipping as it went over the peak! :lol: I KNEW that I was sitting in a bar by the beach with a daft looking devise on my head and yet my body was fooled into thinking it was on a theme park ride!


I tried to do the horror maze and couldn't even leave the first corridor :eek2:

Honestly can't wait for more games..

If anyones seen Sword Art Online.. That Premise looks epic! (Though I did get a little addicted to WoW way back in the day)


On another note, Pokemon go also looks awesome.. :mrgreen:

saw these advertised - 'buy an S7 get the headset free etc', I didnt think it was worth it yet, but will be interesting to see if/when its developed beyond a few gimmicks and becomes a widely supported gaming device!

I was feeling woozy after the blue angels flight!


I have this thing called Ocean Rift which puts you underwater, with Dolphins, great white (scary), reef sharks, killer whales, sea lions etc etc even sea dinosaur thingies. It's just f**king jaw dropping when a huge orca comes past you from behind and you wasn't expecting it. It's by far the best £70 I've spent in years.

Sounds awesome!


I can't wait for this to be the next "Norm" in gaming :D Even my 3DS at the moment, tiny though it is, is a great step forwards for games..


Not the greatest video to show off the idea, but gamers would suddenly become extreamly fit, rather than the couch potato stereotype!
