The new kid on the virtual reality block, Daydream, is the next step in smartphone-based VR from Google. Instead of requiring an expensive headset powered by a computer, Google believes more people would use VR if it was powered by something they always have on them — a smartphone. You put your phone in a box, strap that box to your head, and use a special controller to interact with the VR environments created by Google and their partners. Pretty neat!
At this time, the only Daydream-ready phones are the Google Pixel and Pixel XL, so if you want to give Daydream a whirl you're going to need to go ahead and get yourself one of those devices as well. Or, enter this contest and maybe you'll be the lucky reader that takes home a FREE Google Daydream View and Pixel or Pixel XL! Keep reading for all the details!
We're helping out our friends at VRHeads for this one, so all of the tasks below may look a bit different than other AC contests in the past.
