Samsung announced a lot yesterday, including a new phone and a fresh look at its latest Gear VR and the compatible controller. To show off its new headset, it had a pretty strange advert.
Shown at the end of its conference, the ad shows an ostrich accidentally stumbling into a Gear, which has been carelessly left outside by what I can only assume is some VR-hating neanderthal. With the headset rather unconvincingly strapped to his head (isn’t his IPD off the charts?) he finds himself flying, so he gives it a try himself. Nevermind that Gear doesn’t have inside-out tracking and walking with the device on is absolutely not recommended. In fact the ostrich even trips up. Maybe this is really a VR health and safety ad.
