Samsung Shows Off VR, Wearable Solutions at MWC Americas
Samsung is aiming to raise some eyebrows at the inaugural Mobile World Congress Americas MWC event with a new VR exercise system and three new wearable solutions for the enterprise.
VR for Fitness Centers
Samsung is also spotlighting the VirZOOM VR Fitness platform at MWC, a B2B VR solution for fitness centers seeking to elevate the workout experience through virtual reality. Gym members mount a Life Fitness stationary exercise bike outfitted with the VirZOOM module and use Samsung Gear VR to immerse themselves in captivating games – including cycling experiences. Users move through a virtual world proportionately with their real world pedaling speed, while the handlebar’s resistance buttons are repurposed for gameplay. The solution utilizes a washable VR headset cover that is sanitized after each use. VirZOOM, Life Fitness and Samsung GearVR can help fitness centers attract new customers and initiate vSports competitions, offering a differentiated gym experience.
Samsung’s wearable solutions operate via Samsung’s Gear S3 smartwatch. SoloProtect is essentially an emergency alarm service for workers who spend a lot of time visiting strangers in their homes, such as home care workers and real estate agents, monitoring their location with GPS and enabling instant communication with an emergency dispatch center. Ability Wearables’ solution, meanwhile, uses the biometric capabilities of the Gear S3 or the Gear Fit2 to assess the alertness of workers on long shifts, such as long haul truck drivers. And Reemo’s solution, also available for the Gear S2, is designed to monitor seniors’ biometrics including heart rate and activity level, collecting the information for caregiver use.
MWC Americas runs from September 12th to 14th in San Francisco’s Moscone Center, with Samsung showcasing its new offerings at West Hall #402 and North Hall #N642.https://vr.differentimpulse.com/samsung-shows-off-vr-wearable-solutions-mwc-americas/https://vr.differentimpulse.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/footer-splash.pnghttps://vr.differentimpulse.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/footer-splash-300x300.pngVirtual RealityMWC Americas,Samsung,Virtual Reality
