Google working with Qualcomm, HTC, and Lenovo on standalone Daydream VR headsets

Google working with Qualcomm, HTC, and Lenovo on standalone Daydream VR headsets

"VR can transport you". Under each category, you'll see a continuously updated stream of new experiences and content. We don't know if it will be Daydream branded or not; Daydream being Google's Android-based VR project. Here are the highlights.

Google's decided it's removing the phone part of the equation entirely, announcing at Google I/O 2017 today that it's building bespoke headsets that incorporate all its VR tech into one portable device. Altogether, Daydream will be available on 11 devices by the end of the year. Those who don't mind the phone-based VR, though, will soon have a new option: Daydream and the Galaxy S8.

HTC Vive is to build a virtual reality headset that will run on Google's newly-expanded Daydream platform.

"Getting into VR is as easy as picking the thing up", Bavor said. By creating standalone headsets, Google and its manufacturing partners will be able to customize device's displays, optics, and sensors to work better with VR.

Google also announced that it will be launching two low-priced virtual reality (VR) headsets made by HTC and Lenovo for it Daydream VR platform.

Google Inc. wants a bigger slice of the burgeoning virtual reality market.

Such technology is important for VR's success. It suggested their advent will break down the barriers between the real and digital worlds, enabling greater efficiency in day-to-day tasks. Tango is also coming to more smartphones, including the Asus Zenfone AR launching this summer.

As no external device, such as a smartphone or computer, is required to power the headsets, the website says that users won't have to worry about tripping over wires and "latency should be non-existent". While GPS provides directions to a place, a device with VPS can direct the user directly to objects, such as an item in a store. We think VPS will be powerful in a variety of scenarios. Besides, the first version of Android O developer preview also introduces something called - Adaptive Icons, which basically makes the icon of any third party app to look like the stock Pixel launcher apps.

"We're already at a point where millions of people are beginning to enjoy some of what these new developments can offer, but it's early days", he said, using a phrase popular with Google executives trying to rein in expectations. Quality is more important, especially when it comes to virtual reality. The rather beefy feature gives a lot more context of how Google came to moving from its Daydream efforts to its upcoming VR evolution.
