According to a report out of Engadget, Samsung is currently working on a VR headset that will pair with its phones and tablets to potentially bring you an intense gaming experience. Similar to the Oculus Rift or Project Morpheus from Sony, a VR headset tries to insert you into a game in the most immersive way possible. The content is in your face, looks as if it’s surrounding you no matter where you turn, and reacts to your movements – it’s as if you are in the game. VR headsets are all the rage these days as a potential, future game changer. 

The details are scarce on Samsung’s supposed headset, but sources claim that Samsung will try to undercut both Oculus and Sony on price in a rush to market. The device will also connect with phones and tablets (via wire, not wirelessly), so that your Android games will enter a virtual world. Of course, developers would have to build out games specifically for Samsung’s headset, since current games wouldn’t exactly work properly or in any way different, even with a VR headset on.

And that’s about all we know. The report states that this VR headset will arrive some time this year and is different than Samsung’s rumored Google Glass competitor.
