While Google arguably made the right call finding inspiration in “the clothes you wear” for the comfortable, breathable Daydream View, it felt a little odd to pair the “Really Blue” or “Quite Black” Pixel and Pixel XL phones with the somewhat bland-looking “Slate” VR headset.
But if fashion was more important for you than getting the immersive fabric-manufactured goggles free of charge with Pixel pre-orders, it’s now time to rejoice. Deeply red and fairly white Daydream View flavors are officially available at the Google Store with estimated shipping by December 8.
Actually dubbed “Crimson” and “Snow”, the new colors add a welcome touch of flashy charm to the original fully gray virtual reality content viewer. The rose-coated variant in particular stands out, and may get its initial inventory depleted before long, what with its snowy white accents and all.
It goes without saying that all three models cost $79 stateside, supporting the Pixel, Pixel XL, Moto Z, Moto Z Force and a slew of upcoming ultra-high-end Android handhelds with identical specs, including motion controllers out the box at no extra charge.
