VR is growing. The content is awesome. Gaming is probably the most popular way to use VR. But what about sports? We all love sports, but we can’t make it to every game.
We have life work commitments, it can get really expensive.
So what if I told you that your smartphone and this could transport there in the comfort of your own home? So I’ve partnered with Intel to show you how to do this and experience in MLB game with me. This is all done through Intel, through the VR app for Gear VR.
You need this. The true VR app and a compatible Samsung phone that a lot of you probably already own. Today I’m going to use the brand new Samsung Galaxy Note eight. All right, let’s do this.
All right, so here’s what it looks like when you first fire up Gear VR.
It’s really awesome. You really need to try this out. But what you need to do is download Intel true VR. This is what powers this entire experience.
You can do that right on the Oculus store. Let’s go ahead and fire this up. Obviously, I already preloaded this. I’m using the new Gear VR remote. Really easy to navigate this way. This is what you’re going to see when you jump into the Intel True VR app. There are different choices here. They’re expanding on different sports.
You’re going to be able to see NFL. So if you’re a football fan, you’re really going to like this, too. But what I’m going to do is I’m going to jump into Major League Baseball.
And what you get is a live game every Tuesday. So MLB fans, you have something to be excited about. This is really awesome. It makes you feel like you’re there. All right.
I got to put that. I’ve got to put the remote for this one. This is unbelievable. It feels like you’re being transported right there into the game. I’m right behind home plate and I can see everything.
I mean, this is the next level. I can see people holding cameras and people in the stands. And I’m looking right at the dugout. I wish I could show you what I’m seeing.
But, you know, coffee, right. In gameplay footage and all that stuff. But I’m watching the Blue Jays the Red Sox right now. And I can change the perspective if I want, on where I want to be to enjoy this footage.
I mean, this is way better than watching it on TV. I mean, you’re literally in the game.
OK, so what’s awesome is that I can change the perspective on where I’m at. So if I want to be at 3rd base, I can hit that menu right there. And it’s going to switch me to third base, which is incredible.
I can watch the game directly from there, or I can go from high home and be at the very top of the stadium to where I can see everything. And I think this is probably where you want to be.
But this is really, really cool. Like, I’ve never seen sports like this before. So this is still kind of tripping me out. I can’t believe I’m experiencing this. But if you look at the top, you can see the score right there.
But if I want stats, I can come down here and provoke stats so I can see their batting average and everything like that on the fly.
And if I don’t want that to get in my way, I can just get rid of that, which is unbelievable. And then there’s a related content, other things that I can do.
And if you don’t catch this game live, you can catch it on a replay, and then you can kind of skip where you want to go to the game, which is amazing.
So if you want to kind of skip a few things, want to see what happened at the end, then you can catch that on Intel, a true VR app. So if you can’t be there, then this is definitely the next best thing to it. I’m watching players warm up right now. And this is game-changing. I mean, this is going to change how you watch sports.
So think about this. This could be your best friend. And when my wife is watching all those reality shows that I hate and I don’t want to be a part of, I can just plug in my headphones.
Fire up the intel. True VR app. And I can just enjoy the game.
So I’m challenging all sports fanatics out there. If you have a compatible Samsung device with Gear VR, you need to download Intel true VR and try this.
