Daydream will replace Cardboard (disposable headset released in 2014). It will be mobile VR platform, which means that viewers will not work without a phone (at least at the beginning). And, since Cardboard worked with almost every decent smartphone, Daydream will be much more restrictive. Only new smartphones will be compatible with this platform, with special sensors and screens.
