Six Flags and Samsung team up for a new ‘mixed reality' roller coaster ride
If the partnership between Samsung's Gear VR and Six Flags to bring you VR roller coasters last year was too much virtual and not enough reality, you're in luck. The two are collaborating again on a new ride called The New Revolution Galactic Attack, an experience that now incorporates augmented reality for a mess of visual stimulation.
Just like the park's previous VR roller coaster rides, attendees will again be given a Gear VR headset to wear for the duration. This time, riders will get to use the device's passthrough camera feature and see interactive graphics overlaid on top what's out there in the real world, which means the person sitting next to you could be part of the experience.
