Facebook is shipping the first consumer virtual reality product - Samsung Gear VR, a mobile VR headset powered by Oculus

Today is a historic day for virtual reality Mark Zuckerberg posted on his Facebook

After years of development, we're shipping the first consumer virtual reality product -- Samsung Gear VR, a mobile VR headset powered by Oculus.

Our mission with Oculus is empower you to experience anything, anywhere with anyone. Now, you can begin to step into a world with thousands of immersive videos, movies and games with Samsung Galaxy S6 and Note 5 phones.




The reviews of this product are great. WIRED says "Good VR is here" and "...spending $99 on it is a no-brainer. There's nothing like it..." while Fortune says "Gear VR is the best money can buy".
I believe VR is the next big computing platform -- and a lot of people will experience it for the first time on mobile.


Here's a photo of me playing CCP's Gunjack on Gear VR with Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe. It's hard to explain how fun and immersive the experience feels of instantly being in another place -- in space, under water, on a mountain, anywhere. I look forward to many more people having this experience in the years to come.
