Meet Daydream View VR

The world of virtual reality has a new competitor from Google called Daydream View mobile virtual reality handset. It is priced at $79 and made of lightweight plastic. It is compatible to work with almost all Android phones. In terms of design, it is relatively the same shape and size as of a mobile VR headset. The lightweight material makes it comfortable to wear.

Just like Samsung Galaxy Gear, one can slip a compatible smartphone inside for a self-contained VR experience. The Daydream View is lightweight and cushiony with comfy sweatpants vibe. This makes them comfortable for hours of wearing them. It lets you explore new worlds in your personal VR cinema and play games. It is very easy to set it up. You just need to unhinge the elastic strap at the top to open the front panel. Take the remote out and place the phone between the front panel and the lens. You can then close it by attaching elastic strap.
