Google's newly announced Daydream View VR headset is a comfortable fit for any users. For all the talk of virtual reality games and experiences being immersive, the physical reliance on a headset can take people out of the experience. The Daydream View is made from soft felt, which makes it 30 percent lighter than other plastic headsets, reducing the strain on people's heads and necks.

The felt headset offers several benefits. Firstly, the phone-mounting system on the Daydream View is completely contained within the headset, which eliminates the chance of misplacing small removable parts. Next, the soft material means that users can leave their glasses on while wearing it, whereas plastic headsets don't have room for glasses.

The felt comes in three colors: Snow, Slate, and Crimson.
