    My my two boys 8 and 5 really dig the ocean experience. Every night they're asking me to do it. lol
    Doesn't it say that you should let kids under a certain age use the VR? I think it's like 13 years of age or something. Because their eyes are still developing at such a young age?

    Thanks for the suggestions for using the Gear VR with glasses. It's a shame as it feels like it's just coming into focus (when I'm not wearing them) when I run out of adjustment on the wheel.

    Will see if those wipes help with the fogging problem.

    How is it for watching a regular movie? Is eye strain any issues?

    I limit them to 2 minutes. They only like the underwater experience. I would never let them watch Netflix using it.

    Started with my Gear VR today.

    Some scenes where I am in mid air made me feel sick even though I don't suffer from vertigo.

    Porn is just different. Thought I was going to get my eye poked out there! Puts a different spin on things.

    Some of the 360 examples are just amazing.

    Can't get the focus exactly right as I am short sighted so it hurts my eyes after about 15 minutes.

    So it's an experience that I'll dabble with from time to time.

    Would not have bought it at £90.

    I can't post links yet, but you have to create a specific file path that will tell Oculus Cinema to offer the movie in 3D.

    SD Card support is coming soon for the S7/7E, but for now the movie file needs to be saved on device:

    DCIM > Movies > Oculus > Movies > 3D [File]

    Then when you load up Oculus Video, you can choose from a list of "My Videos" and if the file is HSBS/SBS or Blu-ray 3D, it will automatically play in 3D.

    I've watched Jurassic World and In The Heart Of The Sea like this and both were very enjoyable. When they get the resolution increased in the coming years, it's going to be ...unreal.

    Yes it could be an awesome device to watch 3D films on if the resolution was better.

    But for now they need to add really strong 3D films such as A Turtles Tale, Journey to the Center of the Earth, and the Jurassic Park conversion - so we can get an idea of just how good the 3D pop out is in the virtual theatre

    I found out by accident that you can play video files stored anywhere on the SD card. The location does not matter.

    All you need to do is find the files using the VR Gallery app and you can play it from there. The player defaults to 2D but got can readily change that once it's started playing to 3D by pressing the centre button on the gear and selecting 3D as the playback option. Works for me so we don't have to put all of those files on internal storage.

    You CAN do that, but I like the Oculus Cinema experience, especially with Void Theatre.

    The music player app when you are in the rocket ship cockpit is awesome as well.
    What app is that? I'd like to try it.

    guys, use the MilkVR app by samsung. Im able to play any videos in that viewer. Has a button that changes the different VR/3d modes including 2d so u can watch regular movies on the big screen. Files dont need to be anywhere specific. i have movies in about 3 different folders, and it finds them all. give it a shot!!

    I don't watch Netflix without now. Being in that VR cabin by myself just watching movies is the best. I hope I don't go blind watching it in the Gear VR too long. Anyone else try to go up the stairs in the room? I walked into the wall Lmao.

    I took two different extreme roller coaster rides from 6 Flags on Milk VR last night. Really wild, but suffered a little bit of motion sickness. And I roamed around with some Rhinos, who are disappearing from existence due to ruthless poachers.
