Virtual Reality (VR) is no longer some distant, experimental technology. It’s here, and it’s transforming the way the world is entertained. At CES 2017, industry leaders have come together to showcase the technology’s latest advancements. Perhaps nowhere is more abuzz with excitement, however, than Samsung’s Galaxy Studio.


The experience zone is best described as a technological playground of sorts, outfitted with four types of 4D simulators that make VR more exciting and dynamic than ever before.



A recently unveiled gyro takes participants on a 360-degree race through space, while a module sends thrill-seekers on an exhilarating ride down a skeleton track. Meanwhile, attendees experience an airshow from a pilot’s perspective via a 4D chair, and a newly introduced Sway simulator takes viewers on a scenic boat ride. The devices offer an adrenaline rush that is sure to leave just about everyone with a smile on their face.


“This is not my first time to try out virtual reality,” said a CES attendee who participated in the airshow simulation. “But this is definitely my first time to experience virtual reality like this. Too cool!”



The Samsung Galaxy Studio also gives CES attendees the opportunity to participate in a unique, 4D interactive game that puts the viewer in the middle of a giant robot war. Utilizing a variety of sensors and cameras, the game enables viewers to virtually become one of the robots and throw items at their opponent to gain points.



Visit the Samsung Galaxy Studio at the Las Vegas Convention and World Trade Center (LVCC) Main Concourse (GL10) until January 8, 2017, and stay tuned to see how Samsung is innovating to transform the way the world is connected and entertained, virtually.
