Samsung-Gear-360-Camera-09_900Earlier this year, Samsung launched the Gear 360. In case you missed the launch, this is basically a camera that can capture 195-degree video which would be useful in helping to create VR content. Unfortunately prior to this, the camera was only available through online retailers, but not anymore.

Samsung has announced that they will be expanding the availability of the Samsung Gear 360 camera in the US by making it available in brick-and-mortar stores, such as those of the major carriers in the US like AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and US Cellular (T-Mobile is oddly missing from the list).

It will also be available via regular retailers such as Best Buy, so if for whatever reason you prefer making your purchases offline, maybe you want to see it and feel it for yourself in real-life, then these are some of the offline options you can explore. Of course the camera will still continue to be sold online, so online shoppers don’t have to worry.

As for pricing, it will be sold at $350. According to Nick DiCarlo, Vice President of Immersive Product Strategy at Samsung Electronics America, “The Gear 360 is a new frontier documenting life’s memories, in the most immersive way possible today, and then sharing that via social, or directly into Virtual Reality. With the Gear 360, consumers will be able create their own immersive experiences and share them with their friends and family.”
