If you preordered either color, your headset will ship today. If you place an order for either headset today, your order should arrive no later than December 16th. Regardless of which color you select, the price of entry is still $79.
Daydream View is the successor to the low-cost Google Cardboard VR accessory. It is constructed of plastic, foam and fabric and includes a hinged panel to slide in your smartphone. Thankfully, the face mask portion of the headset is removable, allowing you to clean it with soap and water to wash away the oily residue from your face.
The Daydream View comes bundled with a wireless motion controller that you grip in a free hand to navigate VR environments. The remote itself is equipped with a trackpad, Home button, and volume controls.
In addition to the new colors, Google also announced that a number of new apps and games are coming to Daydream including apps like HBO NOW, HBO GO and Netflix. You’ll also find some rather cool games like LEGO BrickHeadz Builder VR, Underworld Overlord, Gunjack 2: End of Shift and Need for Speed No Limits VR.
