Samsung at the ‘Birth’ of VR

Taking VR to the next level, Samsung – using its Gear VR – has taken part in the world’s first live-streamed child birth in virtual reality. An Australian couple – Jason and Alison Larke – were separated when their son was born, with Jason at work 2,500 miles away from Alison. Samsung set up a 360° camera in the delivery room. Using a Gear VR headset, linked to the camera, Jason could look around the room in real time. You can watch the video yourself (, although remember that it contains footage of a live birth (around the 4 minute mark).
