Specifications Gear VR headset
The Gear VR is very different from a Google cardboard or plastic VR headset. The Gear VR is firstly equipped with a micro USB port, so the VR headset can support the hardware of the smartphone. This is done by means of a built-in accelerometer, gyro sensor, geomagnetic sensor and proximity sensor. These sensors prevent disorientation and thereby prevent nausea and dizziness. The Gear VR headset achieves an optimal virtual reality experience.
Secondly, the Gear VR uses an attractive interface, made possible by Oculus. In this interface, the user can easily launch applications and navigate through menus while wearing the VR headset.
Thirdly, the Gear VR is equipped with a touchpad on the side of the headset. This touchpad allows for navigation throughout the Oculus interface, but also in many of the Gear VR applications. For example, you can move with this touchpad in the Google Street View’s virtual reality application.
Fourthly, there is a button that regulates the volume as well as a button to navigate to the previous menus or to the main menu by the pressing it for a longer time. Furthermore, there is a cogwheel on top of the VR headset, which changes the distance of the lenses to the smartphone’s screen, so the image can be focused.
Finally, there is sufficient space available between your face and the lenses of the Gear VR headset, making it possible to wear reading glasses.
