“Head-mounted display – it’s not a toy, – says Samsung, adding – they can change people’s lives.” The company tried to prove their words with Gear VR, who helped his father the family beyond the hundreds of kilometers from their families, see the birth of his third son. Samsung “reunited” Jace and Alison Lark.
The pair is 2500 miles apart from the fact that the Jays had to leave for work when Alison was carrying their third child. Samsung helped father of the family attend the birth, using a virtual reality headset.
Jace was created for a special room in the mining town of Queensland (Australia). While his wife was preparing to leave for hundreds of miles away, in a hospital in Perth. Hospital room was equipped with a camera with a 360-degree viewing angle and audio equipment.
With Gear VR Jays could not only see virtually all of the delivery room and everyone who was in it, but he could also interact with Alison and eventually see the birth of his son. February 20 Lark Steele was born in that room. And despite the fact that the Jays are not physically present at birth, actually both parents were together when it happened.
