Samsung's cheap new VR headset

Last week, at Oculus Connect, Samsung announced that their new Gear VR headset will be coming out in November. The big news is that they're planning to sell it for $100.

It requires you to have a Samsung phone to power it and works with the Galaxy Note 5, S6, edge and edge+.

So far only a few apps are available – not as many as with the Oculus Rift – but this could be a big push for additional developers to come into the space.

There are a number of practical applications possible (it's only software…): medical training, machine maintenance, architectural walkthroughs, driving and flight simulators, etc.

Have you had any experience with the business uses of VR?
