Google are releasing their new VR headset in November 2016 called ‘Google Daydream’ that will cost $79 and £69 in the UK.

The smartphone you will be using for the headset has to connect to the Pixel or Pixel XL mobile which will apparently be the only two smartphones to be compatible for the Daydream Headset in which pricing starts at £599.

This headset is the upgrade from the cardboard VR headset they released not long ago, which is priced at £15, but with a significant price increase with not much different experience to the user.

Positives:

Comfortable

Comes with a remote

Reasonable price for  a VR Headset

Doesn’t target a vast amount of VR users

Negatives:

You have to buy Google’s phone for it to work which costs £599

Creates screen dust

Not yet released
