Samsung Prices the Galaxy Gear VR Headset

Soon you'll be able to turn your phone into a portable VR headset
Samsung has revealed the pricing for it's newest piece of wearable technology, the Gear VR headset, which is a VR headset created in partner with Oculus VR to turn your Samsung Galaxy Note into virtual reality display. 

The standalone version will set you back $200, while the second package comes with a Bluetooth gamepad and is only $50 more for a total of $250. Though not available yet, you can order the headset directly from Samsung.

  1. They have not even released a working VR headset yet have they?
    Last I heard they were still working on VR sickness that occurs after using it for extended periods of time.

    1. Technically, Oculus has a working headset, as they have already released development kits to those who were willing to purchase them. However, it does lead to VR sickness with extended use. Though the company (and others who are working on VR) are working on a solution to VR sickness, I have a feeling you won't see any of those innovations in the first builds.
