Manny Pacquiao had the opportunity to try a virtual reality headset, the Samsung Gear VR specifically, for the first time.
It appears that he is completely amazed of the technology as he is almost at a loss for words.
Watch the video below and see how Pac-Man reacts when he wears the Samsung Gear VR.
Samsung Gear VR is a virtual reality headset that is a product of the collaboration of Samsung Electronics and Oculus VR. Currently, this device can be used by mounting a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 on it, which serves as its screen and controller. A brand new Samsung Gear VR is coming soon that is compatible with recently launched Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
Personally, virtual reality devices are really amazing. I believe that it will change the landscape of gaming and entertainment when they become fully available to consumers. I was able to try a similar one, the Google Cardboard at Google’s “Asia’s Mobile First World” congress held in Taipei.
Check out my hands-on video below. It may not be as awesome as Pac-Man’s, with juxtaposed view of what he sees on the device, but it shows how mind blown I was. Believe it!
Aside from gaming, imagine watching “The Walking Dead” wearing a virtual reality device, right?
