HEADSET INFORMATION AND DEVELOPMENT

Google Removes Cord, PC from Virtual Reality Headsets

With its partners, Google Inc. plans to introduce a stand alone headset. The virtual reality product will give users the possibility of exploring the virtual world without being connected to a personal computer or a smartphone.

  • Google, HTC and Lenovo

    Are creating the new headsets, which are expected to be on the market later this year. HTC already sells the Vive, a high-end VR headset that requires a PC to operate. The new product is planned to work on the Google Daydream platform, which currently powers a virtual reality headset. Because of this connection, Google will already have a list of applications for the headsets already available.

  • Version of Daydream

    Unlike the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, the new headsets will not need you to place cameras around the room to work. Users will be able to move throughout the virtual world. Sensors are built right into the device. This version of Daydream would be optimized for VR viewing, including improved movement tracking.

  • Cost Between $799 and $500

    Although Google is mum on the cost of the new virtual headset, it should cost between $799 and $500 depending on features and other options. While thatís a lot of money, it could be more if you add in the cost of the gaming system, PC or phone. Theyíre designed to make VR feel casual and accessible even to people who donít have Daydream-ready phones.

  • Standalone Device

    The companies are working on immersive computer, which is an emerging technology that enables computers to function like we work. This project has be underdevelopment for more than two years. The partners are ready to release a reference design and two commercial products. Because of Googleís experiments with augmented and virtual reality, it was able to develop the the ideal self-contained VR headset. The standalone device is just the beginning of a new era in headset technology. Critics predict more will come in the future.

  • Final Thoughts

    Google plans to employ the Daydream user interface to fine-tune its phones. Euphrates will add the features you need for devices. Thus, users canít just pop apart the device and use as a phone. Those who have tested the prototype have found the device starts a solid foundation, but critics are wary that Google wonít fulfill its other promises. Google and its partners are working on establishing those promises before the launch date. The headset will be bulky in the front with a strap around the head in the back. It will be wide in the front and taper on the sides to a thin area in the back. It will come with a remote control device that will allow users to experience the world they see. They will be able to make choices throughout the gaming experience or other parts of life. Technology critics are anticipating the headset will take over the virtual and augmented world by storm.
