When you’re an NBA fan and occur to have a Samsung Gear VR headset, you’ll have the ability to watch the Golden State Warriors get their championship rings tonight in superb livestreamed virtualness. You possibly can then watch the sport. I’ll be doing so, as a result of sports activities are fairly quick paced and it’ll in all probability make me puke, which might be an excellent story, and we’ve already tried to watch a soccer recreation in VR. So…why not?


The firm doing the broadcasting, NextVR, will permit you to watch all of it on the NextVR app that you would be able to nab via Oculus Residence. They’ve developed what they name a “lens-to-lens system” for capturing the VR in broadcast high quality. If you have already got the app, ensure you replace it earlier than the sport.

I’ll make sure to let our buddies Andre Iguadala and Harrison Barnes understand how they appear shut up.

The livestream begins at 7:30PM PT so be a part of me in making an attempt to not journey and puke throughout your pets. Properly not your pets. Mine. And yours. You already know what I imply.

(I’m principally joking concerning the puking factor, however relying on the social conditions being broadcast, VR may be fairly jarring. However that’s a part of the enjoyable, proper?)
