Google Daydream VR Demo & How to Install On Android N!

Google has announced Daydream VR coming to next Android N a few weeks back and it should be coming soon to everyone but if you want to check out the beta Daydream VR demo, you can do it if you have a Nexus device with Android N.

Now, currently the only app it has is a beta painting app that is a watered-down version of Google Tilt Brush but with this app you can experience Daydream VR along with a 3D controller (using a 2nd phone as emulating controller).

Nexus 6 Unboxing!

After months of waiting, I was finally able to score a brand, new Nexus 6 32GB from Motorola.com for $649.99. It was a long wait (due to the popularity of the phone) but the wait may be well worth it then buying it over retail price from scalpers on eBay.

(Disclosure, I wear normal to baggy jeans, can fit 6-inch smartphones just fine but skinny jeans may be pushin’ it.)
