Google released along with HTC and Lenovo quite interesting Virtual Reality headsets. You do not need any additional hardware like smartphones or PCs and have inside-out tracking. The launch will take place this year. There is no price yet.
As part of the Google I / O in Mountain View, California, Google announced other virtual reality headsets. This is a standalone hardware in which you do not have to push a smartphone. When developing one of these headsets, the search engine giant relies on a partner who has a lot of experience in the VR area. This is HTC. The company launched the Virtual Reality Headset HTC Vive a year ago.
The new Google headset uses the Daydream platform and does not require a PC. The necessary hardware is already installed. This of course has a great advantage: The VR experience should be easier, more comfortable and more immersive in this way. You simply set up the headset and set it on, which is an advantage, for example, in the burgeoning video experiences, which are usually quite short.
The stand-alone VR system from Google and HTC relies on tango-based inside-out tracking. You do not have to distribute sensors in the living room. These are already installed in the housing and scan the environment. As a technical basis for the VR glasses, Qualcomm’s reference design is equipped with a Snapdragon 835 processor.
Another autarke and apparently quite similar VR glasses arises in cooperation Lenovo. And you do not have to wait too long for the VR glasses. This year the first specimens will be launched. Prices are not yet available.
