The first thing I noticed about Google's new Daydream View VR headset is the pink controller. In the original View, all plastic parts were beige or gray, even if you got the model wrapped with rich crimson fabric. Now, they're coordinated: if you buy the colorful "Coral" edition, you'll get a coral remote, too.
Last year, Google announced the Daydream View, its first ever mobile VR headset. Not only was it powered by Android, it could also be used with a variety of different Daydream-compatible phones and it was covered in fabric. Today, the company announced the brand new version of the View, and this time, it comes in multiple colors: Charcoal, Fog and Coral.
Announced as part of Google's Keynote today, Google will be releasing a version 2.0 of its Daydream platform. According to Google Blog the updated Daydream View will be compatible with the recently announced Pixel 2 / Pixel 2 XL as well as any other Daydream-ready device, and will be priced at $99.

Around the web
Google's virtual reality announcement Wednesday at Google I/O was a big deal. But that might not be readily apparent to those still getting their feet wet in VR, so Google made a video to help you get a better idea of what WorldSense does.
Road to VR
Google today announced that standalone VR headsets are coming to Daydream, the first of which will be made by HTC and Lenovo. Supporting these new devices is an inside-out positional tracking system that the company is calling 'WorldSense', which "dramatically" improves tracking over previous Daydream devices.
Fast Company
Google's announcement yesterday that it is working with two partners on the creation of stand-alone virtual-reality headsets that require neither being connected to a smartphone nor being tethered to a PC means that the next generation of consumer VR is coming no later than year's end.
We got our first full look at a positionally tracked Daydream headset running Google's WorldSense technology today. Lenovo unveiled the Mirage Solo headset today, which it hopes to ship in the second quarter of this year. The standalone device will sport a Qualcomm 835 chipset, 4GB of RAM and 64 gigs of onboard memory.
