Google’s newest VR headset is aimed at creating a more comfortable experience for the user as the headset itself is made out of a softer material. It’s being released on November 10th 2016 and costs £69. The fabric used is lightweight and soft which means that the user shouldn’t feel any discomfort when using it.
The Daydream is compatible with a wide range of Android phones such as Pixel 2, Pixel, Galaxy S8 & S8+, Galaxy Note8, LG V30, Moto Z & Z2 & many more models. Be taken to a different world with the Daydream as you enter a virtual world. Not only can you experience these new worlds so can your family and friends as you can stream what you are seeing on to your TV at the same time.
The headset has been designed with the idea that consumers will play on it for a longer time as it’s more comfortable to wear. The miniature motion controller lets you control what you are doing when you are playing a VR game. You can pair the controller with your phone through bluetooth. Both Google Pixel devices work well with the VR headset although with the smaller one you can see the edges of the screen whereas the larger Pixel gives you a wider screen.
The Daydream is easy to set up which means that it’s great for taking on the go. The only downside to the design is that the strap may seem like the headset may fall off as it only has a strap going around the side instead of over the top of your head as well. There are plastic bits on the headset which allow you to adjust the tightness of it, if you have it too tight then these plastic bits may dig into your head which would be uncomfortable.
The apps, games and videos that you can watch or play on the Google Daydream are limited at the moment as there’s only around a dozen that supports this VR headset. In the future, we expect to see many more apps that can be played using this VR headset.
