You can now play Minecraft in virtual reality

If there’s one game that everyone has been dying to see make the transition to virtual reality, it’s Minecraft. With its infinite, procedural generated worlds, it could be one of the first VR games with the ability to complete immerse players from the minute they put on their headsets — and now it’s finally available on the Gear VR.

Here are all the best VR headsets currently available to buy or preorder

We’ve seen big game developers and entertainment companies show interest in the technology. But perhaps most importantly, we haven’t seen a major critical backlash from the average consumer.

Whether it changes the industry or not, we’re ready to give virtual reality a fair shake.

Gear VR Theater 4D Experience

I just rode a roller coaster in California without ever leaving Barcelona

I just rode a roller coaster in California without ever leaving Barcelona

Samsung has “Gear VR Theater with 4D” experiences set up in at least three locations in Barcelona, Spain, including the Galaxy S7 venue, a cube in front of one of Apple’s stores, and in its huge booth at MWC 2016. Anyone who has tried the Gear VR headset undoubtedly expects some sort of virtual reality experience from these theaters, but what’s the 4D all about?

I took Samsung’s virtual reality show for an eyes-on spin at MWC, and the company truly made me believe that I was riding a roller coaster outdoors in California rather than sitting inside a giant hall at a Spanish mobile trade show. More →

The Galaxy S7 might not be the most exciting thing Samsung unveils this month

The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will be Samsung’s 2016 flagship smartphones. Set to be unveiled during a special event in Barcelona, Spain, later this month, the two phones have appeared in a number of leaks, most of which detailed the specs and features of the phone. More recently, a report revealed what looks like the actual press renders of the handsets.

Now, a new rumor suggests the Galaxy S7 will debut alongside an awesome accessory that might be even more exciting than the phone itself.

Galaxy S6 and S6 edge: Gear VR hands-on (and eyes-in)

Samsung on Sunday announced that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are going to get their own version of the Gear VR, the company’s own virtual reality headset that lets users enjoy immersive VR content with help of compatible devices — you actually have to insert the smartphone inside the headset to make it all work.

Naturally, I had to take the new model for a hands-on, and eyes-in spin at Samsung’s booth at MWC 2015. More →

And now, it’s Apple’s turn to copy Samsung

The Gear VR is probably the greatest thing Samsung has created in a long time. The simple but well-made virtual reality headset blows minds young and old. I have personally shown it to a number of people, and so far I have yet to come across anyone whose jaw didn’t drop. It’s awesome.

And it looks like Samsung’s biggest competitor may be getting ready to launch a rival device. More →

Video: I filmed my father using virtual reality and can’t stop laughing

Have you ever just wanted to test a new gadget or phone on an unsuspecting member of your family? I was so impressed with Samsung’s new Gear VR virtual reality headset that I brought it over to my parents’ house for them to try. While both my mother and father were equally blown away, my mother acted like a normal person throughout the demo.

My father did not, and so I filmed it to share with the world. More →

Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S Edge expected to include Gear VR support

Against all odds, the Gear VR turned out to be an incredibly cool accessory. Unfortunately, unless you own a Galaxy Note 4, you aren’t able to use one, but according to SamMobile, that’s going to change.
