So, in essence, if the reality in front of you isn’t exciting enough you can now jump into another one, anywhere the world will allow humans to bring a phone.

This latest edition of the Gear VR is compatible with the Galaxy Note5, Galaxy S6 edge+, S6 and S6 edge.

Improvements include new foam cushioning that is said to make the device 19 percent lighter than the previous edition, adding comfort for the wearer, and a better touchpad, which provides greater control to users while enjoying films, gaming, 360 degree videos and experiential content.

The Samsung Gear VR Consumer Edition is now available in Frost White at select Canadian retailers and Samsung Experience Stores for $139 CDN.
