Google Daydream View VR Headset

With the increased public interest in virtual reality and the impending holiday season fast approaching, it was only a matter of time before tech giant Google got in on the party. Having watched a number of major players enter and set the bar, the brand had the advantage of learning from the mistakes of their would-be peers and have finally released a version of their own. Today they announced the Daydream View, their unsurprisingly well-designed VR headset.

Looking more like a design you’d see from a third-party boutique or a luxury designer rendering, Google’s Daydream View boasts a refined style-forward approach to virtual reality that abandons onboard technology and all its trappings – instead leaning toward the simplicity and comfort lacked elsewhere on the market. Made from a comfortable breathable fabric, the device’s faceplate is lightweight and can be removed in order to hand wash it. And the simple swinging door with an elastic security band allows you to load your Daydream-compatible phone into the front of the device in seconds. And the intuitive two-button controller is equipped with smart sensors to track your movement, allowing for true fluidity of motion. There’s no word yet on the price, but we can expect the brand to announce it soon, what with a release date so near in the future. [Purchase]
