Google’s VR plans amount to a lot more than just another iteration of Google Cardboard.
According to The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with Google’s projects, the company is currently in the middle of developing a standalone virtual reality headset that doesn’t require the use of a PC, smartphone or even a game console. It will, however, come equipped with a display, high-end processors and front-facing cameras. Chips made by Movidius Inc. will also be used to track head movements.
The Mountain View company’s plans don’t end there, either. Alongside the standalone headset, a new version of the cardboard viewer will debut later this year, and its been said that it will include computer chips and sensors.
