Google To Launch Standalone Daydream VR Headsets

So you are tired of having to use your smartphone to experience virtual reality and don’t want to upgrade to Oculus Rift or headsets like it? Google has just announced it is planning to introduce standalone VR headsets that don’t require a phone or PC. Their hardware will be optimized for VR with WorldSense.

WorldSense enables position tracking, so your headset will be able to track your movements in space without any external sensors. Here is what Google had to say about this development:

We worked closely with Qualcomm to create a standalone headset reference design, which partners can use as a blueprint to build from. HTC VIVE, a leader in the VR space, and Lenovo, a leader in mobile and computing, are both working on devices, with the first ones coming later this year.
