Samsung’s virtual reality unit, the Gear VR, is officially available to consumers. VR is such a new and burgeoning market that it will likely face some hurdles on the track to user adoption. One of those hurdles is normalizing the medium. In light of this, Samsung has released a standard Internet browser for the Gear VR. Users will be able to browse the web in much the same way that they currently do on a mobile phone or computer. The experience can even be controlled by simply looking at buttons or menus, which the company is referring to as “Gaze Mode”. It also has support for voice commands as well as an on-screen keyboard. 360 degree video, 3D streaming, and HTML5 video are also featured. The browser can be downloaded now from the Oculus Store!
