The parents have to wear a Gear VR headset and kid will wear a Google Cardboard headset and both will enter into the same virtual reality world. The parent will recite the story called ‘Most Wonderful Place to Be’ and you both will visit the magical places by sitting on your bed.

The app ‘Bedtime VR Stories’ can be used when the parent is away from home. In fact, Samsung emphasized that the app is more for parents who live somewhere else for work perhaps.
