Oculus Rift Comes to Mobile with Samsung Gear VR

oculus-home-tempThe team at Oculus Rift has released its first Mobile SDK created in partnership with Samsung for developers looking to build virtual reality apps.

The Oculus Mobile SDK v0.4.0 will initially only be compatible with the new Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition, a new virtual reality headset that uses the 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 4 as the screen. The Samsung Gear VR is available for pre-registration sales to US developers and other enthusiasts today.

Developers can get full access to the source code for Oculus Cinema, Oculus 360 Photos, and Oculus 360 Videos in order to get started on building their own virtual reality experiences. Once created apps will be hosted in the Oculus Store.
