Samsung has begun expansion into the world of virtual reality: together with Oculus, the company introduced the Gear VR helmet.


Unlike the Oculus Rift, Gear VR will not require a wired connection to a PC. The user will interact with the helmet using the trackpad and head movements.

The virtual reality helmet will work on the basis of the Galaxy Note 4 smartphone. The device is expected to go on sale this year. The price is still unknown.

Feedback is coming from potential buyers: the idea is exciting, but both software and games for the device are still in development. Why do you need a helmet if there are no programs for it?

Samsung Group is a South Korean group of companies. It was founded in 1938. It is a manufacturer of high-tech components, telecommunications equipment, household appliances, audio and video devices. The headquarters is located in Seoul.
