Google’s VR headset available at Carphone Warehouse
Google Daydream View VR headset works with Daydream-ready smartphones, such as Pixel. The phone slots in the front of the headset, and by moving the included handheld controller you can naturally interact with the virtual reality world in front of your eyes.
The headset is made from a soft fabric making it lightweight and comfortable to wear – even over glasses. And the removable face pad is machine-washable, so it’s fresh when anyone wants to a have a go.
The apps that go with Google’s Daydream View platform are the most exciting bits. So, let’s take a quick look at what will be available from the Play Store at launch...
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them
The Harry Potter prequel, starring Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, is set to hit cinemas this month. And to whet the muggle world’s appetite, JK Rowling’s universe is coming to VR. Use the controller to solve puzzles and cast spells with your wand for a magical virtual reality experience.
Google Play Movies
Unfortunately, your favourite blockbusters aren’t all of a sudden going to become 360 films, but you will be able to start enjoying them in a VR space. With Daydream, you’re invited to kick back in your own private cinema to enjoy the latest titles from Hollywood.
Playground debuted at Google’s I/O conference, showing off a bunch of mini games you can play using the controller. The ability to actually interact with your surrounding is what sets Daydream View apart from the likes of Samsung’s Gear VR and Google’s own Cardboard.
Need for Speed: No Limits VR
This is the first Need for Speed title to come to VR, putting you directly behind the wheel. Take on a variety of opponents for the title of the world’s fastest and meanest underground driver.
