Samsung's New Gear VR With Controller That's Powered By Oculus
Mobile World Congress is becoming a place where companies bring things to shake things up or bring their wow factor up. You can go ahead and add Samsung to that mix now with them announcing the new Gear VR headset that comes with controller that is powered by Oculus. It appears that players will be able to just use their hand to control the action in whatever they’re playing. It will really feel like the player is interacting with the environment and the characters around them. You will be so immersed that you’ll be able to perform all these actions with just one hand.(Via Oculus Blog)
It will be interesting to see how using your hand to control everything will work in a virtual world. The tightness of said controls will have to be spot-on for the immersion to feel like you’re living in the virtual world you’re playing in. I’m not saying Samsung and Oculus can’t do it, but tight controls and VR interaction/immersion is a good first step.
