Qantas Airways wants to use a Virtual Reality headset, Samsung Gear VR, to take you anywhere you want while in a first class cabin of selected Airbus A380 flights. Select first class lounges (in Sydney and Melbourne) will also get the Gear VR so you can preview your destination.
Another use is to view movies on a large virtual screen, instead of the small display you normally get. And if you find yourself missing the feeling of flight those games give you, you can get a real-life view of the landing through the plane's external cameras.
The Samsung Gear VR is a headset that combines with a Galaxy Note 4 to provide an experience similar to the Oculus Rift. Jaunt and Tourism NT will provide live-action footage of various destination.
The Gear VR headsets will be offered to first class flyers in Sydney and Melbourne's lounges and in the first class cabin of A380 flights between Australia and Los Angeles. The trial will start in mid-March and run for three months.
