Google's VR headset, Daydream View is now available around the world, including the United States. Consumers can readily buy it for 79 USD. However, enthusiasts and curious cats can avail one at the Google Store for 38 percent off with the current price standing at 49 USD. Google Store's promotion is currently the most economical way to legitimately get the VR headset.
The major deal will only be available for purchase from the Google Store in the US and will continue to be on sale until February 25, 2017. The headset comes in all the different colors for consumers to choose from, like Snow (light gray), Slate (dark gray), and Crimson (dark red).
Daydream View was supposed to be only good for Google's Pixel and Pixel XL, however, several handsets are now equipped with Daydream View compatibility like Lenovo Moto Z series, with Huawei's Mate 9 Pro, ZTE's Axon 7, and Asus' ZenFone AR all slated to support the Daydream when they officially release as well.
Daydream View is designed to be comfortable with fabric and soft microfibers covering the VR headset instead of metal or plastic. Users won't need to worry about fatigue as it also 30 percent lighter compared to other headsets. The Daydream View also comes with a special controller to explore the 3D environments as you point at and click on objects with it. It can be set aside when the headset is being used for WebVR or Cardboard content.
It would be a great time for users to grab the headset as there is already a good number of apps and games available for the Daydream platform. These include Netflix, Hulu, HBO Go, vTime, and more. Interested buyers must take note that there are still apps coming soon as VR is on the rise.
