Google turns on the challenge on virtual reality: here is Daydream VR

The U.S. company launches new virtual reality viewers in collaboration with HTC. Among the novelties a remote control to manage the controls

Never Google decides to be second in the field of innovation. And that's why the U.S. company after Cardboard enters the market for virtual reality devices with Daydream VR. A viewer in form and concept much more similar to the already known Samsung Gear VR.

The Daydream VR platform had already been announced by Google in August and now it is reality. It works quite similar to other visors already on the market. It can be compatible with smartphones and apps of the latest generation and the novelty will be the remote control that should facilitate the controls. A small white remote control with a round touchpad and two buttons. The launch price of Daydream will be $79, just over 70 euros. The viewer is manufactured by Htc and will be untethered from Google's Android mobile operating system. So as to encourage other Android manufacturers to create their own VR visors as well.

Future

The new Google product emphasizes how virtual reality is a growing trend in the last period. And although Daydream VR is still in its launch phase, many video game and app manufacturers have said they are interested in continuing development in this direction. As well as in the projects of the U.S. company there could be the acquisition of the rights to some sports leagues and special 360° videos
