For years now we’ve been hearing bits and pieces of information about how close we are to virtual reality (VR) being an everyday thing. Just thinking about it opens up a whole new world. You get a chance to experience technology in a way you have never done before.
Google has just surprised us all and revealed Daydream, which will be arriving in November, just in time to make the holiday season special. Daydream is a virtual reality platform designed to be easy to use and intuitive. Something that everyone will be able to enjoy without much previous experience.
The headset is made of light material and it is going to be comfortable to wear – nobody would want to wear something heavy and awkward on their head (aham, HTC and Oculus). Google is not only going to concentrate on marketing the tech part of the product, but on the soft breathable fabric as well, because it really deserves it. Even though you might think that such a small detail isn’t going to change your experience in any way, it makes a huge difference in the usability of the product. The Daydream headset comes in three colors: black, crimson and grey. The face-pad is removable and you can wash it whenever you choose to.
Since Google, a very big and influent company, is the company making this virtual reality headset many games and apps will be coming out for it as well. A Harry Potter game is specially developed for this headset. Probably every fan out there (and there are millions of people) will not hesitate to buy both the Daydream and the game. You will be able to read the Guardian, watch CNN or your favorite YouTube channel in VR mode. Imagine what kind of an amazing experience it is going to be to see an action film on the virtual screen or a game of football – it is practically like being there yourself. All you need to do is put your phone in the headset and you are ready for the magical experience of virtual reality.
