Virtual Movie Theater

If your Dad loves going to the movies, he'll be blown away by the cinematic experience provided by the Oculus Cinema app. Trailers and films are available on a mega-sized screen in 2D or 3D, depending on his preference. He even gets his choice of seats: anywhere in the theater, in his own living room, or even on the surface of the moon.


Immersive Photo Galleries

Through the Oculus store, your Dad can download 360-degree VR panoramic photos, and explore ancient ruins, stand on Mars, visit Paris or Rome, all from the comfort of his easy chair. Gear VR lets him experience any reality beyond his peripheral vision. When he looks up, down or all around, he's surrounded by breathtaking landscapes, cityscapes and famous landmarks.
