Google has developed Daydream View VR headset working with clothing material makers to get that soft fabric feel instead of the generic plastic stuff that every other headset has. The result of which is a soft textile-like finish for the headset complete with a few different colour options which include slate, snow and a rather different crimson. It’s also eyeglass friendly for those folks out there with prescription glasses.

  • Soft Fabric builds that’s lightweight and comfortable to wear.
  • Eyeglasses friendly
  • Auto alignment system and wireless pairing via NFC
  • Intuitive controller with button and touchpad
  • Ever-growing collection of apps and games

The Daydream View VR headset comes with a controller which has 2 buttons and a touchpad. With it, you can interact with the VR world and even draw or write with it. You can have virtual reality experiences from the ever-growing collection of apps and games. You can even view the whole YouTube gallery using the headset. Of course, 360-degree videos would look cooler, but even regular videos would look much cooler when it’s seen on the giant screen.
