  • Oh, the Possibilities! Five Awesome Daydream View Apps

    Now that Daydream View is no longer a dream, it's time to put it through its paces as far as apps are concerned. Below is a mix of reliable apps and some nifty new ones, resulting in a list that's high on adventure and information.

    1.Google Street View

    Of course, of course, of course - Street View is a dependable Google creation, after all. With Daydream View, you can up the ante on the virtual exploration of just about any place you want. From searching for a particular place like a restaurant or park, to visiting destinations you can only read or dream about, Google Street View's 360-degree functionality can be pretty mind-blowing with Daydream.

    2. Google Arts & Culture VR

    Virtual reality and art seem to be a match made in heaven. If you don't have the time, resource, or inclination to gallery-hop, let the combined genius of Google Arts & Culture VR and the Daydream View guide you through masterpieces of fine art. Audio guides are also available to allow you to really get into an artful immersion.

    3. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

    Where to find them? Why, on Google Daydream View, of course! The app is not a game by a long shot, but there are some sweet control gestures you can use with your Daydream View for this tie-in app with the upcoming movie.

    4. Polyrunner VR

    Run as fast as you can without getting winded...sort of. Polyrunner VR is one of those endless running games that you will get hooked on. Daydream View's controller will make it feel more intuitive that you...might...just...catch yourself...catching...your breath!

    5. The Rose and I

    A Sundance FIlm Festival hit, Rose is an interactive animated experience that allows viewers to feel loneliness, love, loss, and friendship. And what is virtual reality without the feels?

     

     

  • Exciting Developments in VR!

    Now that I Am Cardboard's own Kickstarter has wrapped up (thanks to all our backers, you are truly an awesome bunch of geeks!), we're turning our attention towards exciting new developments in virtual reality. Though not in our own product roster, we believe that these developments reflect our own vision-mission, which is to make VR accessible to a wide range of people!

    First up, Google is getting ready to launch Daydream in November. As its name implies, it's a headset that aims to take you on incredible adventures in virtual reality at any time of the day, anywhere you may be.

    Google was first to level the playing field as far (as VR accessibility is concerned)  with the launch of Google Cardboard a couple of years ago. With Daydream, an even more intuitive headset is ready for many immersive experiences - all in a lightweight, attractive, and breathable package. As its product description goes: "Swing a bat, steer an airship, or even cast a spell with a magic wand", because the Daydream controller allows a wide range of movements to complement your imagination.

    Then PlayStation introduced PlayStation VR, which emphasized intuition to enhance the immersive gaming experience.

    Gamers are in for a virtual treat with this headset. It puts the gamer right at the center of exciting new frontiers like STAR WARS™ Battlefront™,  PlayStation®VR Worlds, Golem, and RIGS Mechanized Combat League. A sleek new design promises hours of distraction-free fun with only your imagination as the limit!

    Of course, there's VR-in-a-snap in the form of our very own Flip 360, a pocket-sized smartphone case with a built-in VR headset. You don’t have to bring a separate viewer, because now your phone case is your viewer! This product is a hit with people on the go who want versatility, portability, and ease of use in a slender, durable package.

    There's no reason not to immerse yourself in virtual reality today - not when awesome new developments are making themselves available for you.
