There's a lot to be excited about with Google's Daydream View VR Headset announced today: it's cheap, easy to use, and probably the best-looking headset so far. But what I'm looking forward to the most is its motion-sensing controller. Sure, it probably won't track movement as well as the likes of the HTC Vive - being hundreds of dollars cheaper makes that somewhat forgivable - but for me, it just needs to be good enough for those looking for an entry-level, casual VR experience. And if it is good enough, what that means is that the floor is raised for VR; natural, hand-gesture-based interaction with the virtual world will be an expected, and achievable, minimum for a VR app interface of the near future.
the View comes with a motion-sensing wand that lets you interact with things as though you were playing with a Wii
