After delays and delays and even more delays, Samsung’s virtual reality futuremask — the Gear VR — is finally on sale in Australia. Here’s how much it will cost to strap some future to your face.
Samsung’s Gear VR is a phone-powered headset that works exclusively with the new Galaxy Note 4 and comes by way of a partnership with Oculus itself. In practice, it’s a lot like Google Cardboard but comfier, with a strap, and designed so that it will only work with a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, thanks to the shape of the hardware and some exclusive software from Oculus. Samsung’s VR headset is not unlike the Durovis Dive, or similar smartphone-masks.
You can grab one right now from a Samsung Experience Store or from Samsung online for just $249.
Of course, you’ll need a Galaxy Note 4 to get it working. Keep that in mind when you think about picking one up. [Samsung]
