Over the past couple years we have been promised the wonders of a virtual world. We could not have thrown our money at the computer monitor more often. Consumer VR has finally arrived.

Today on the show we are joined again by our friend Holotape of the Left handed VR podcast to discuss the release of the Samsung GearVR and although it isn't the PC powered VR wonder that we REALLY want, it surely does not dissapoint.

As big as Virtual Reality will become as a medium and community, it is still niche with a close knit commnity. It was just a year ago while listening to the first SVVR UBERCAST when I had the realisation that I wanted to be a real part of the VR community. With a warm welcome that visualization has come to fruition. Thank you new friends!

Today on the show Cris Miranda of EnterVR joins us to talk about the second SVVR Expo and other things.
