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?
