Our view on Google Daydream
The spiritual successor of Google Cardboard; Daydream, focuses on high-end mobile virtual reality. The headset, named Daydream View, breathes comfort and comes bundled with the Daydream controller.
Limited compatibilityOnly works with so-called Daydream-ready Android phones, built for VR with high-resolution displays, powerful graphics and high-fidelity sensors.
NewDaydream is Google’s new upcoming VR platform (Fall 2016) for high quality mobile virtual reality.
What sets it apart?
The main differentiator of Daydream is not necessarily its pajama-like, lounge wear design, but rather the inclusion of the Daydream controller. It’s a gesture controller, comparable to Nintendo’s WiiMote, but much more simple. It allows for motion and movement tracking and volume control. And because it comes bundled with every headset, it guarantees a baseline input method for the platform.
