Whoever said you can't be in two places at once was wrong. With the power of a Samsung Gear VR and your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge, there's no limit to the places you can go. To start your adventure, slip your phone into the headset and step into the Oculus or the Samsung Milk VR store.

1. Plan Your Next Real-World Vacation

What's the best way to ensure your next vacation is a success? Go there before you book your tickets, of course. Watch lions play with their cubs in the Serengeti without any chance of being clawed, or row through the canals of Venice without accidentally getting wet—all without leaving your kitchen table.

2. Immerse Yourself in a Movie

Are you a movie buff but don’t always enjoy the movie theater rush? With the Gear VR, you can settle in on your favorite spot on the couch, pop some popcorn, select a movie and go. When paired with the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge, you can watch movies like The Martian, or the entire Hunger Games series, in full 360-degrees. It's like 3D, but multiplied by 120 percent.

3. Defend the Galaxy from Your Couch

If you love playing games on your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge, adding the VR only enhances your gaming experience. Try one of the growing number of VR games now available. Fight your way through the clouds in Gunjack, or explore cryptic, compelling landscapes in Land's End, all while still in your pajamas.

4. Escape Boredom

Who wants to waste a sick day in bed with a cold? While you're replenishing your body with fluids, replenish your spirit at the same time on a helicopter tour of New York City or stroll through Machu Picchu.

5. Get Pumped With the Pros

It's not always easy to get motivated for a workout. Take some time out to see how a pro does it by standing side-by-side Lebron James as he walks you through his personal workout routine. If that doesn't get you moving, why not watch a real basketball game, courtside.
