When I was growing up, I noticed that my dad was on the earlier side of adopting some of the new technology. We had an Atari without begging him for it. And, he brought personal computers into the home (hello Commodore 64!) when they were still considered more of a luxury item. I benefited from those purchases as he let me take that Commodore 64 to college at a time when you had to visit the small computer lab if you wanted to do any word processing or other computer based work. (Hey, I remember the need for a boot up disk, something that boggles the minds of my boys!)
I’ll admit that there’s something awesome about getting new technology ahead of the curve, even if it sometimes means spending a little more. I don’t even want to think about the cost of our first DVD player. But, it was worth it to me as I feared my eldest son would break the VHS tapes from watching certain shows over and over.
So, what’s new on the technology front that has caught my eye?
The Samsung Gear VR!
What looks like a fancy pair of goggles is poised to take your experience with a compatible Samsung smartphone (Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 edge+) to a whole new level.
The idea of virtual reality has been around for a while. Yet, Samsung has now harnessed it in a portable format. All the fun things you already do with your smartphone like playing games or watching a movie change when you connect your phone with the Samsung Gear VR and put it on.
You can have your own private cinema that you customize. Or get up close and personal with your gaming experience. You can be in the center of the action!
Everything is made easy to set up, the Gear VR weighs less than a pound, and is comfortable to boot.
Through 6/18/2016, you receive a Free Samsung Gear VR, plus $50 of Virtual Reality content with purchase, or lease, and activation of select Samsung Smartphones! That would make for one awesome Father’s Day gift this year. I seriously doubt he’d let it collect dust in the closet like, say, another tie. Hop on over to read all the details of this Samsung Gear VR offer
Do you have the Samsung Gear VR already?
Is this something you could see dad loving for Father’s Day?
Or, would you get it for YOU?
