For the past few years, virtual reality has become a big thing, especially with smartphones adapting to this technology. One of the best ways you can experience VR is through Google's Daydream platform. There is, however, a catch.
Can Huawei successfully conquer the United States mobile market this year? It certainly thinks it can with the recent launch of its newest phablet offering, the Mate 9.

Facebook may not have beaten YouTube to deploying 4K 360 live streaming, but it did get the jump on Twitter’s Periscope. This week, the biggest social media platform in the planet officially launched initial support for 360 degree live streams.
We are witnessing more and more instances of live sporting events getting married with virtual reality. For instance, NextVR has already partnered with Fox Sports in making a soccer game, a title bout, a college basketball league, the US Open golf tournament, and the Daytona 500 available for viewing on VR. To NextVR’s credit, it has not stopped there -- it has also teamed up with the NBA League Pass in showing one contest from the 2016-2017 season every week in VR.

Along with the newPixel and Pixel XL smartphones, Google also took the opportunity to introduce a new virtual reality headset, the Daydream View, and it has a rather unique design -- its goggles are covered in fabric, which as explained by Clay Bavor, who heads VR projects at Google, is a direct result of working with clothing makers in designing the headset.
