You may have heard of Google’s plan to go full force at developing their own VR headset and now it finally has a name for the exciting brand, Daydream. Earlier this week, TechCrunch unveiled how the current prototype works through two short video clips. Instead of showing a complete human body in the virtual world, what shows up in the videos are a pair of big googly eyes with headsets and a pair of hands. How cute is that! Learn more about it here.
