Qantas to offer virtual reality in-flight

Samsung and Australian airline Qantas have just announced a new partnership that will hand first-class air passengers a Gear VR headset to try out on on long-haul flights. Samsung’s Gear VR is the company’s stab at a virtual reality headset—although unlike standalone headsets like Oculus, this device requires a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (included by Qantas) to be slotted in to function as the screen. The phone acts as the rig for visual and processing firepower, while the Gear VR headset and its gyroscopes do the rest.
