New Samsung Gear VR Goggles will have an openings in the glass cover for better cooling that will help mobile device to keep the temperature down and operate smoother and faster. Also the back side of a camera can now be functional, so the viewer can see the world around him/her through the device camera. There are more features you can learn from this picture.
We Talk UAV is a drone website, so the thing that caught our interest the most is that Samsung is actually planning to control drones with these VR goggles. The idea is to make the drone follow users head movements to capture panorama.
Also the image suggests that viewer will be able to fly the drone with the head movements from point A to point B that is actually reminding us Fixed Wind mode and Tap Fly feature on a Mavic Pro when using with DJI Goggles.
