You don’t want a Samsung Gear VR

You don’t want a Samsung Gear VR

You might not want a Samsung Gear VR - not yet, anyway. The first Samsung Gear VR you're going to see on the market - as early as this afternoon - is the Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition. This may look like a consumer release, but it's not. AT&T may be suggesting that it is, and Samsung may be suggesting that it is, the team at Oculus VR are making relatively clear that this is not meant to be the end-all, be-all release for the Gear VR.

If Nintendo teamed with Google

If Nintendo teamed with Google today, they'd release their game archives as apps, all contained inside an original NES emulator, one that exists as the only place you're able to play these games outside the original NES or Wii. We can imagine this reality thanks to an artist named WoopWoopWoopWooop. He's from Reddit, and this is a mockup. It's not real, but we wish it was.

Darknet: the Gear VR game that makes you Mnemonic

The creator of the game Auralux has returned to the scene with another aesthetically gorgeous title, this one made for Samsung Gear VR specifically. This game goes by the name "Darknet", and it summons the classic age of "hacker" understanding - namely that time in history when movies depicted hacking as a visually rich, 3D-like experience. This experience stems from films like Hackers, Tron, and Lawnmower Man. You'll think you've entered the retro-future, and you'll have brought your VR self to fight the good fight.

Sony Android TVs to come in February 2015

Android TV, the successor of the somewhat stillborn Google TV, is barely a few months in the market, and yet some true believers are already lining up to take the platform under their wings. One of those is Sony, who courageously announced (or Google announced for them) that its entire HD and 4K Smart TV lineup next year will have Android TV in tow. But what does that exactly mean for the user experience? Some Sony insiders reveals some hints on how Sony's Android TVs will behave when they arrive.
