About The Gear VR Codex

The year is 2023, and the first retail release of a consumer virtual reality headset by Oculus (now Meta) in conjunction with Samsung Electronics, is official dead. First released on November 27, 2015, the service was officially terminated 5 years later on September 30, 2020.

However as any retro game collector can tell you, the end of official support doesn't mean the product no longer works. Far from it

There are literally millions of Gear VR headsets in the wild, and hundreds of millions of compatible phones. Our objective is to help users around the world continue to make use of these products now and into the future.
