Ars Technic’s Tom Preston-Werner reports that a pair of Daydream-enabled headsets will be available to consumers soon, with a price tag that is “more than double the price of an HTC Vive.”
While Daydream is a virtual reality headset with a physical headset, Google’s AR headset is designed to be a much simpler device to use, and will be able to be powered by a variety of Google-made smartphones.
The company plans to start selling a $50 Daydream headset in the coming weeks.
The headset will support the Daydream platform, as well as support third-party apps.
The device will support Google’s Home VR headset as well, and Google will provide the software that allows the HomeVR to interact with the headset.
While the company has not released pricing for the Daybreak VR headset, Preston-WCW notes that it will be priced at $50 per unit.
As with the Daymolds, it will include a Daydream controller.
