I always let you know about some of the gadgets I love for gifting. 2016 has been a big year for VR (AKA Virtual Reality). Samsung has their own VR headset, aka Samsung Gear VR to use with Samsung phones. If you’re a little skeptical about VR, or don’t really understand it, Best Buy has a page to help you learn more.
Here’s a bit of beginner info. Virtual Reality brings the world to you in 360 view. The 360 view form allows you to immerse yourself in the content. This varies depending on the content you are watching. You can be watching a concert in first row seating), or part of a volley ball game on the beach. You’re not watching from the outside. You’re sort of watching from within.
There’s a lot you can do with Samsung VR to entertain yourself. Everything from trailers to actual movies can be seen on Samsung Gear VR.

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.
If you have one of the latest mainstream Samsung Galaxy devices (specifically these: Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 edge+); you can pick up a Samsung Gear VR for your phone at Best Buy.
But if you don’t have one of the phones mentioned above, you’re in luck. Best Buy has a deal where you get a free Gear VR with the purchase or lease of a Samsung Galaxy device. It also comes with $50 worth of VR content. Pretty cool deal.
Escaping to a virtual world is as easy as snapping your Galaxy smartphone into your Samsung Gear VR. Developed in partnership with Oculus, Gear VR is completely portable, comfortable to wear and simple to set up.
