Google’s Daydream View VR headset may not be available in India yet but it’s available online in the US for $79, which is roughly Rs. 5,330. Friends or family in the US who can ship it to you can help you make your tech-loving friend’s Christmas extra magical. It’s one of the few comfortable VR headsets available in the market today because of its attractive fabric and its design. It’s made up of two parts: the first is a lightweight holder for your smartphone accompanied by a set of lenses and a strap you can use to attach the headset to your face.
