Google Daydream VR, all that you must know
Google revealed its new virtual reality headset, the Daydream View. And it's plush: The goggles, which come with a controller, are covered in fabric. Clay Bavor, head of Google's VR efforts, said the company worked with clothing makers to get the right design for the device.

The Daydream View works over glasses and has no wires. Users can drop their Google Pixel phone, also announced Tuesday, or another Daydream-ready device from other handset partners into the goggles to power it.

Today in this article we have brought all the details about this new VR, believe us this is going to be one of the best in category.

Google Daydream: Design

Google's Headset is crafted from fabric rather than hard plastic, Engadget reported. One thing that separates it from the rest is the fact that its 30% lighter compared to other VRs. Arstechnica added that the gear weighs 318g without a phone. Also, it comes in handy with three colours: Snow, Slate and Crimson.

Google Daydream: VR Controls

Rather than place the headset controls on the headset itself, Daydream View sports a small remote similar to Oculus' for more comfort and efficiency. The number of straps and clips intended to keep the device in place has also been minimized. Much more is that users need not to take their glasses off to use the headset.

As a universal VR headset, the VR comes in an image alignment system, meaning that the View does not lock in the phone in a certain position.

The phone compartment has six bumper pads: one in each corner of the tablet and two in the centre. The two centre pads have the capacity to carry a load that is read by the touchscreen. The top and bottom centre nubs contact the screen, and the software connects everything, allowing the image to fit perfectly with the lenses. Daydream View does not use electronic headset making it fairly simple, yet it works.

Google Daydream: Compatible Phones

Although, Google is currently working to make the Daydream View compatible to any phone, so far, Pixel is the first Handset that's been announced for the VR. Both of Pixel's smartphones - Pixel and Pixel XL - works with the handset.

Google is also making Android Nougat on Daydream-ready phones as friendly as possible allowing smooth access and steady gameplay. Possible Daydream-ready phones are Samsung, LG, HTC, ASUS, Xiaomi and ZTE Alcatel. Huawei also released a statement saying that they will be manufacturing Daydream ready phones, headsets and controllers.

According to Wearable, App partners include the New York Times, Wall Street Journal for news Hulu, NetFlix, HBO, and Imax. USA Today, CNN, MLB, NBA and Lionsgate have also signed up.

Price of Google Daydream

Daydream View and its controller will be available for $79 in November. The system will take advantage of Daydream, the hardware and software platform that Google unveiled at its developer conference in May. The platform and headset are designed to provide a vision for the industry and a road map for any hardware maker looking to build a VR system using Google's Android software. It's a far cry from the foldable cardboard products first released in 2014.
