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?
