SEOUL: Samsung has unveiled ‘the future of children’s bedtime’ in the form of an app called Bedtime VR Stories. It combines the latest innovations in virtual reality with the Gear VR headset and Google cardboard headset. Samsung isn’t suggesting that parents switch to virtual reality when they are actually with their children at bedtime, instead, it says Bedtime VR Stories is more for parents who aren’t at home – for example because they live somewhere else or are travelling for work. The technology, which uses the company’s Gear VR headset, is being tested with families in the UK as a prototype. Samsung has already published one story ‘Most wonderful place to be’ showing how the story-telling will work.
