Samsung Gear VR infographic shows you what the new gadget is all about
The topic of virtual reality is not one that is new, but it wasn't until recently that actual viable products that did VR properly were commercialized. At the forefront in that field is Oculus -- the company that brought us the Rift. As it turns out, Samsung's ever watchful eye was also pointed in the same general direction, and it didn't take long for the company to finally debut its own take on the new concept with the Gear VR.

The important thing to remember about the Samsung Gear VR is that Oculus played a major role in its creation, and this is made obvious by the "Powered by Oculus" marking on the side of the Samsung gadget. Where the two differ, however, is that the Gear VR will require an Android device to work (a Note 4), and that's important because the electronics giant will have to spur enough developer interest to jump-start the category on Android. Whether Samsung is to be met with success in that regard remains to be seen, so, for the time being, the company is mostly focused on explaining what the Gear VR actually is, and what it's made of. To that end, Samsung has published an infographic on its corporate blog that gives you the basics of the Gear VR in an understandable and easy-to-digest format. Check it out below!
