This is one of the coolest apps you can get for the Gear VR. NextVR live streams events in 180 degrees, giving you a front-row seat to everything from sports events to US Presidential debates.

It’s also been used to stream the US Open and NASCAR, and there are plans to stream more in 2016, starting with the BIG EAST Men’s College Basketball Tournament.

While such a thing might not appeal to all, there’s some clever stuff going on with the upcoming broadcast. You can choose your perspective, whether it be a low, mid-court camera or a wider view. There will also be a pop-up screen for showing replays and close-ups.

If you’re not into sports, there are sure to be a range of new events coming this year. Being put directly into a big event as it happens is an exciting prospect, so keep an eye on NextVR in the coming months for updates on forthcoming projects.
