Father sitting miles away experiences his child being born: Samsung’s Gear VR




I always get excited with these new technologies acting as a helping hand in healthcare. Recently the very same thing happened. One of the Samsung’s product namely: Samsung Gear VR allowed a father who was miles away from his wife, was able to see his child being born. Isn’t that great!

So what exactly happened?  Samsung had set a 360 degree camera in the room where baby was about to get delivered. Jason, the father was equipped with a Samsung Gear VR headset. By moving the head, Jason, could peer around the room in real-time. When baby was born, he was able to watch the same in 3-D.


Here’s the video released by Samsung that summarizes the emotions of parents. A wonderful experience which without the technology could not have been possible.
