About the Contest

Samsung Gear VR, the world’s most popular virtual reality mobile headset, is searching for the killer app of VR. If it hasn’t been published for Samsung Gear VR yet, send us your awesome demo/app experience created in the Oculus SDK with Unity or Web VR. It doesn’t have to be a complete app or experience. It doesn’t have to be a game (but it can be!). Apps previously published to other platforms since this September are also eligible. We’re looking for diverse and amazing uses of Samsung Gear VR, and want to help promote them to the world.

How to Enter

Submit video or screenshots of your demo/app to us by NOON (Pacific) November 23.
