Husband Watches Wife Give Birth via Virtual Reality With Samsung Gear VR

Emotive Stunt Claims to Be 'World's First Live' VR Delivery

Published on

Editor's Pick

In this film from Samsung Australia and Leo Burnett Sydney, a husband who is four thousand kilometers away from his pregnant wife as she's about to give birth is able to experience the moment in way that's the perhaps the next best thing to being there in person -- via virtual reality.

Using a Samsung Gear virtual reality headset, the man watches his wife deliver their son in Perth, Australia. It's emotional stuff and also adds a real human element to a technology that is often perceived to be just about thrill-seeking and gaming-type scenarios. The agency and client claim the effort is the "world's first live virtual reality birth."
