Daydream: Google’s new VR headset

We’ve all heard of Google Cardboard, the cheap and affordable solution to virtual reality, though compared to the powerhouses such as Oculus Rift or the HTC Vive, it really falls short. Though it looks like the rumors were true and Google finally announced their next, official, VR platform: Daydream.

While the company did not show off a physical headset, they showed sketches of a headset and controller for developers. The controller is very simple and comes in an ovular design with a few buttons, a clickable and touchable touchpad. As of now there’s not alot to go on though the company states that the latest version of Android: Android N, is made to work completely with Daydream. So we’ll be seeing a lot of new apps and integration with Googles VR platform. Currently the company is partnered with Hulu, HBO, IMAX, and Netflix, along with game studios Ubisoft and EA.
