daydreamvr Google’s Daydream platform is not the only VR construction site of the company. Google is also working on a VR headset that manages completely without phone or PC . This also means that all sensors for spatial recognition must be integrated directly into the headset, so eye tracking is also used for the spatial representation. This is how the real and the virtual space are to be merged, mixed reality is the right term. The difference to Microsofts HoloLens is that virtual reality is not brought into the real world, but the real world in the virtual world.

Part of the whole should also be Movidius, a company which recently was acquired by Intel . Intel, as you know, is also talking about mixed reality, a mixture of virtual reality and augmented reality. By using the room sensors and eye-tracking, virtual objects can be displayed adapted to real objects.

That Google is working on such a headset, is not new , this appeared now but obviously with the FCC on . There is not much to see in the documents, but the Director of Product Management for Google’s VR Group is called as a contact. The documents only provide information about wireless functions. Exciting story, especially since it was reported in July that Google plans has set in that direction . If and when you will see the standalone headset from Google? It’s set in the stars.
