Hands on: Samsung’s Gear VR immerses you in virtual worlds with only a Note 4

If the expense and cords of a full VR headset like the Oculus Rift are stilling scaring you off, Samsung’s Gear VR might be the perfect gateway device. Created with Oculus VR, you can slam your new Galaxy Note 4 into the front of the device to drive an Oculus-like VR experience, not outside computer necessary. It’s certainly not for use while texting and walking down the street, but you can use it to kick back at home and for game, or enjoy more passive experiences like exploring an underwater environment.  Maybe someday we’ll all be tripping over things as we try to take phone calls, but for now it’s more of a fun accessory for your new Samsung phablet.
