Another year, another Google I/O. While previous I/Os have been somewhat disappointing, this year brought something unexpected: a new version of Google Daydream which will function as a standalone VR headset. While Google has released other headsets in the past, Daydream is the first to be built in collaboration with a major manufacturer, in this case HTC. It’s also the first to come out of Mountain View which will feature standalone VR — meaning that no smartphone is necessary. Also notable is the fact that there’s something ‘WorldSense’ technology which will allow you to lean, dodge and duck in virtual space. This fantastic new technology understands your movement in space without the need to set up any external sensors. Pretty nifty, eh?
As if all that weren’t enough, the fact that the new Daydream headset doesn’t require any wires also sets it apart from its future competitors. You can enjoy daydream at home or away, experiencing high quality VR you can bring anywhere and share with those around you.
