While experiencing new adventures in wonderful places together is one of the joys of being in love, this February 14 you can do that without ever leaving your home. Virtual reality headsets and compatible hardware will let you and your sweetheart head off to tropical paradises, tour romantic cultural spots or even take a spin around the solar system.
Take off on some virtual travels with:
Google Daydream View (2017): This fabric-encased headset for Google’s Daydream VR platform is compatible with a variety of Android smartphones (including Google’s own Pixel 2). It gets high marks for comfort and improves on the previous version with a tighter fit and a wider field of view. “The material is textured almost like canvas, the strap is firmer and the inside lining (removable facepad)...is softer and more comfortable,” Digital Trends reports. With the Daydream app installed and the headset’s controller in hand, you are all set to use Google Play VR apps like Gala 360 to enjoy the beauty of national parks or Hello Mars to drive a rover around that planet. Chromecast compatibility means the virtual trips can display on a TV screen, too.
