Google Daydream VR Now Shipping
Google’s standalone headset, positioned as a launch device for their new Daydream VR platform, is set to ship as early as November 15th.
Branded as the Daydream View, the wireless headset is now available for pre-order in the US for $79.
Billed as an upgrade on the company’s Google Cardboard, the View will arrive in three different fabric finishes (Snow, Slate and Crimson) and come packaged with a Daydream controller.
Daydream currently only works with Google’s new Pixel phone but support for Samsung, HTC and Sony handsets is expected sometime next year.
Given Google scrapped plans for their high-end VR headset back in July, it looks like this is as big as they’ll go in the space for the time being. Still, it’s markedly cheaper than Samsung’s GearVR and unlike its competitors it doesn’t require you to plug your phone into it.
No Australian availability details have been confirmed yet.
