We think Google's soft, friendly Daydream View virtual reality headset is -- just quietly -- one of the biggest leaps forward that VR has had this year. It's relatively affordable, easy to set up and use, and includes a motion-sensitive controller, so all you need is a new phone to use it with. As of today, the headset now ships to Australia in two new colours and there's a bunch of new VR-ready apps.

Google seems to have solved every issue I had with an entry-level VR headset. It still worked with your smartphone (well, if you had a Pixel, for now) but it was, well... beautiful.
Its strikingly clever, lightweight, fabric-based design and fancy-looking controller had me making grabby hands during the Google event when it was announced. Well, now I have had it in said hands, strapped firmly to my face, did it live up to expectations?
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
