Google's building its own smartphone-free Daydream VR headsets
20 May, 2017, 02:22 | Author: Randy Kelley
The new range of devices will use a tracking technology called "WordSense" that enables the headset to track its wearer's precise movements in space. HTC says that this will be one of the first standalone headsets to support Google's Daydream platform, which implies other headsets are coming too.
Google's Daydream View VR headset was unveiled in October 2016. They are free-form and wireless, yet still capable of providing full 360 degree tracking using what Google calls WorldSense. This would be a change from its current VR headset, which require a smartphone to operate.
He said LG's next flagship smartphone, set to launch later this year, will support Daydream. "It works by using a handful of sensors on the device that are looking out into your surroundings, and that means it works everywhere, there's no set-up and no cameras to install", said Bavor.
Venezuelans again shut down capital to protest government
Increasingly violent near-daily protests that began April 1 have left a toll of 38 dead, and hundreds wounded and under arrest. Venezuela is mired in an economic crisis that has caused shortages of food, medicine and other basics in the oil-rich country.
Unlike the now available VR headsets, the newly revealed ones will feature in-built Daydream standards to let users enjoy VR without the use of cables or smartphones stacked inside them. Google is about to get into this "built-in" territory with Vive and Lenovo, both of which are working on VR devices for the company's Daydream platform.
The headset is described as a stand alone mobile VR device, meaning it won't require a phone or PC to run games and experiences.
Google hasn't been the only company to pursue powerful standalone VR systems - Facebook is working on its own, as is Samsung. Google has rewarded HTC and Lenovo to distribute the finished products by the end of the year. The announcement did not reveal many details except for the model name, "Vive Standalone", and the descriptions - "simplistic, lightweight and portable".
WordSense is based on Google's Tango technology, which allows devices to track motion, understand distances, and establish their position in the real world.
