Despite all the recent buzz, the fact remains that the immediate commercial prospects of virtual reality head mounted displays (HMDs) aren't nearly as bright as many like to imagine and it could be quite a while before such devices become mainstream — something even Oculus Rift creator Palmer Luckey admitted a while back. Even that isn’t enough to deter new companies from entering this incipient market, though. The latest entrant is widely renowned German optics company Zeiss.
Samsung has been working on its own VR headset that is being developed in collaboration with Oculus VR. According to SamMobile, Samsung’s VR device is called the Gear VR and it will be announced at IFA 2014.
