Samsung Gear VR releases in USA

Samsung’s VR based head mounted display the Samsung Gear VR has today launched in the USA and can now be ordered via the official website making it the first of the new wave of VR display units to see a public release. Powered by Oculus technology, the Gear VR requires a Galaxy Note 4 mobile phone to work as this is slotted into the head mounted device.
