Google’s portable Virtual Reality (VR) headset DayDream View, which was unveiled along with Pixel smartphone last year, is now available in India for Rs 6,499 on e-commerce sites including Flipkart and Amazon. The headset is bundled with a hand-held controller to help users interact with virtual characters and objects using inbuilt smart movement sensors along with volume control buttons. DayDream View works using smartphone displays; it processes display output from smartphone within its hardware and converts into VR output, which can be viewed via the headset's lenses. The headset is a significant upgrade to the cheaper Google Cardboard headset, which is built using a cardboard box as housing. Google Cardboard’s VR hardware is detachable and can be attached to other ‘viewers’. This makes it more developer friendly and hence can be considered as a prototype. However, with Daydream View, Google claims to provide a higher-resolution display and motion sensors, which aren’t available on Cardboard. “The headset is made with soft, breathable fabric and is designed to fit over eyeglasses,” the company added. And along with the controller, users can perform gestures, actions like swinging a bat, waving a wand or even drawing in a virtual space.
