Experience the 2018 Winter Olympics in VR

For most of us, getting up in the middle of the night or early in the morning to simply watch the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang live is hard enough. But what if you were able to roll out of bed, stumble to the living room, and watch your favourite Olympic events live and—effectively—in person?

PlayStation VR takes the next step with non-gaming content

If you’re a non-gamer, the options for virtual reality headsets have been somewhat limited. The best of the best—Oculus Rift and HTC Vive—require powerful (and expensive) computers and are ideally suited to hardcore gamers. At the other end of the spectrum, smartphone-powered headsets like Samsung Gear and Google Cardboard offer subpar optics that can quickly strain the eye.

Catch every second of Rio 2016—live online and in VR

The Rio 2016 Summer Olympic Games are in full swing and there’s never been a better time to catch every minute of the action, even if you’ve cut the cable cord. Whether you’re on the bus to school, holed up in your cubicle at work, or stretched out on your couch—you can catch the Games live online, including through your smartphone or tablet. There’s even a live-streaming virtual reality option.

Getting your #VR feet wet

What if you could go skydiving, shark diving, and canoeing through the heart of the Amazon—all without leaving your couch? All you need is your smartphone, a gizmo worth about $100, and a sense of adventure.
