Google Daydream

Google started out with their ultra affordable cardboard version of a VR headset, where for $15 you could fold a cardboard cutout into a virtual reality device. The Daydream takes this to the next level by providing a virtual reality experience that, like the Samsung Gear VR, pairs with your phone. The list of compatible phones is short as of this publication, limited to the Pixel and some Motorola models. More are on the horizon, however. What’s interesting about the Daydream is that the headset design is intended to be comfortable like everyday clothing, with a cloth exterior that seems similar to jersey cloth. The headset will come in 3 colors (only slate available as of this publication, with a heather gray and crimson red coming soon) and comes with a controller.

Microsoft HoloLens

Naturally Microsoft would get in on the VR game. They take it to the next level, however, with mixed reality – advanced sensors collect information, map and understand the physical space you are in, to enable holographic computing. Not only does the device sense your surroundings, but it also brings in the use of holograms which you can interact and move freely with. It’s not quite ready for the mainstream though – Microsoft is hoping for developers to join their network of app builders – for a cool $3,000.
