Rumored: Google's Augmented Reality (AR) / Virtual Reality (VR) Headset: A Blend

Google's Standalone Headset May Feature Augmented, Virtual Reality

Julian Chokkatu | July 18, 2016

Rumors and leaks have been going around about Google’s virtual reality projects — most notably a report from Recode that said the search giant reportedly killed off a VR headset project that would rival the likes of the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift. But that doesn’t mean we won’t be seeing a headset sometime soon.
It’s not exactly new information that Google is working on a mobile headset — the company said as much at its developer conference in May. It will be built for Daydream — an Android VR platform that offers high quality apps and content. The platform works best on phones and headsets with the proper hardware and it’s why Google released a reference guide to hardware manufacturers. We’ve seen a few devices become “Daydream-certified” already, like ZTE’s Axon 7.
