Eyes in Google’s Daydream View

Stepping into Google’s super powered Google Cardboard.

Google Cardboard is a great way to see something quick in a 360-degree peek, but it’s not good for long-term use. Samsung’s Gear VR is more capable, but limited only to Samsung phones. At Google I/O this year, Daydream  [Read More…]
