    Pretty interesting how Google has used what looks almost like a Rift remote as something that appears to function as a Vive Wand. Should make for interesting gameplay, especially since it tracks all movement; writing, drawing, shooting, and swinging!

    What I didn't get was how/why the headset is connected to the Phone, it says wireless and I think it refer just to the remote, but I was reading about the headset will also be connected but with no details of how and why.

    It is impressive how they've created a controller that can interact with the Daydream. Will be interesting to learn more on how it plays/feels.

    At least they shown something. I was started to think about Daydream as vaporware. You know… it's Google! Google glasses anyone?

    Daydream ready systems use NFC to put it into VR mode. Recode confirmed that. The "connected" to the phone just makes sure that the phone is lined up correctly for the display, that's all. The rest is similar to Cardboard. The controller is BT.

    Then we only need to hope that the speed for the wireless connection of the daydream and the controller is fast enough for a good experience.

    The generic Blue Tooth controllers have been out now for some time, it's pretty much a controller that can use with or without VR, what I find interesting is that Google now comes out with something similar, it's usually the original that's knocked off not the other way around, I guess what I'm saying is that it's surprising that Google had a magnet and not a BT controller first. This is highly unusual.

    I was starting to think that Daydream was just a Google dream, lol, sure I'd like some Google glasses, so long it's not $3k like Hololens!

    A difference between Daydream and Google Glasses (I think) the first is a consumers product and the last is a developers and marketing product.

    Do you guys know if the controller can be used as a normal bluetooth controller on games that support controllers or on PC?

    I'm curious to find out how well it'll work with only the phone sensors. I'm used to the Gear VR, which obviously has additional, higher quality, sensors inside the headset that enhance the experience.

    I wonder if the other daydream devices will also be releasing their own remotes?

    I was hoping if I could connect my SpeedLink Bluetooth controller for playing racing games and fps. Could someone tell me if that's possible?

    Doubtful, it's designed to use the standard renote
