Father’s Day is coming up! If you haven’t figured out what to get the amazing father in your life something cool, I’ve got some great ideas for you, especially if that special someone is a techy geek (hey, that’s not a bad thing – I’m one myself! Well, not a father techy geek, but you know what I mean).
Mobile virtual reality has finally arrived! Be at the center of exciting games, watch the best of Hollywood in your own private cinema, socialize with friends, and so much more. The Samsung Gear VR drops you right in the action — and it’s only from Samsung and Oculus.
This is seriously cool! I wondered how long it would be before technology came to this – and here it is! Come to mama! Er, um, I mean – get it for dada! (you know, so mama can play with it, too.)
Check out all the cool features:
Purchase and watch hundreds of movies and TV shows from Oculus Video
Plus, stream over 1 million short films and videos from Vimeo.
Watch Netflix in a whole new way
The Netflix app on Gear VR offers a living room experience, so it feels like you’re on your couch watching TV shows, movies and more, wherever you are.
Purchase and play premium games
Plus, keep up with the best gamers in Twitch.
Enjoy extra comfort and durability
Light, ergonomic design features a wide facial interface, flexible padding and an easy-to-use touchpad. Plus, it fits over most eyeglasses.
I’ve always loved Samsung products – the ones I do own have been reliable and fun to use – this would be the icing on the cake for sure! And, you know, something that I can play with in the SheShed I’m doing this summer. You know it’s gonna happen.
The phones that currently work with this cool tech are the Samsung Galaxy Note5, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5 require a software update from your carrier.
I’m going to be plotting and planning to upgrade my current phone so I can get (and use) one of these Gear VR’s. My hubby has a Samsung phone that would work, but I want my own. I used to have a Samsung phone, but that was quite a long time ago and I switched to a different brand – but I am so ready to switch back.
Best Buy has a great deal going on right now, too:
Hello! That will make shopping a bit easier for the budget. The offer is good starting today, 6/5/16 through 6/18/16 either online or in Best Buy stores.
