Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked Launch Is The Largest VR Event In The World

Image Cache: On the eve of Mobile World Congress 2016, I’m at the launch of Samsung’s latest Galaxy devices in Barcelona — and inside a custom-built 4000-seat auditorium, every seat has a Gear VR headset on it. Samsung tells me that this is the largest virtual reality event in the world.

You can actually watch Samsung’s MWC 2016 conference in 360-degree virtual reality — but I was thinking that was only for the folks at home. I’m in the room and watching the show in VR. This is the future.

I don’t know if anyone has ever even set a record for the largest virtual reality setup in one place, but I’d put money on this taking the cake. Seriously, this room is massive, full of people, and each one has a VR headset about to be strapped on to his or her face.
