Samsung Gear VR Headset with Controller
Samsung Gear VR transforms virtual reality with a handheld controller that seamlessly responds to organic, human movements in virtual experiences. Every move, from turning and grabbing to pointing and lifting, is naturally connected from physical to virtual, allowing users to go flying through the Alps, watch a film with a far-off friend, experience a festival across the globe, or employing the superpowers of a game’s character. Place a Galaxy device into the Gear VR headset to explore multi-dimensional worlds in virtual reality. Travel the planet, play games, and watch content with intuitive responses through the handheld controller.
Explore thousands of experiences from Samsung VR’s premium video service. Lose yourself in street festivals around the world, snag front-row seats to a concert, or kayak through a protected rainforest. Plus, when users create stories of their own on Gear 360, they can upload and share them on Samsung VR.

In the 70 years of its existence, Samsung has grown into an international company with interests spanning from home electronics to skyscraper construction. The company takes its global role seriously, working to improve communities with both its financial support and the expertise of its talented employees. The company’s Solve for Tomorrow competition, for instance, challenges kids to create videos that demonstrate how science and math can be used in new ways to improve their local environment. After screening the videos of thousands of worthy entrants and dozens of confused American Idol hopefuls, Samsung chooses five winners, whose schools each receive $110,000 in technology. Solve for Tomorrow is just one of the company’s outreach initiatives, which align with its philosophy: to help build a “better global society.”
