How Google Will Make the Rest of Us Care About VR

Google Daydream

The standalone Daydream VR headset will also come with a new design.

In this new range of devices, they will use "WorldSense".

At its developer's conference, Google confirmed a "cable-less virtual-reality headset" that works without a corresponding phone or PC. The tracking system, called WorldSense, has 6 degrees-of-freedom so users can move about freely instead of more limited platforms like Cardboard and Daydream which only allow users to look around from a fixed point. This VR-and-VR-only experience is viewed as an evolution from the original "Mobile VR" ecosystem Google established previous year, accessed through certain other "Mobile VR" headsets using head mount-adapters for smartphones. But VR is a crowded space and Google will have to compete with Oculus, Intel, Samsung and others.

We already knew that Google is developing standalone headsets with HTC and Lenovo, with Qualcomm already building some reference devices. According to Google, the new engine will use simple tricks and some coding to render high-fidelity graphics to make VR more immersive and closer to reality.

Macron as French President: Lesser of Two Evils
Addressing his supporters in the grand courtyard of the Louvre, Macron said he would defend France and Europe. In addition, even if Ms Le Pen was beaten, she achieved an unprecedented score for the National Front.

What do you think about these new capabilities? When you're done, you can go back to playing or viewing without disengaging from virtual reality.

Other details like pricing and the exact dates of release are yet to be known. For starters, the update is coming to all headsets and supported handsets.

You'll be able to share your VR activities with your friends and family by casting it to a nearby television.
Dubbed as the Daydream YouTube VR app, users will be able to enjoy VR videos easily with a community, i.e. you will be able to enjoy a VR spaceship with your friends in their virtual avatars at the same time. In one demo, we saw the person wearing the Dayview Dream putting on a puppet show of sorts using the tracking to control the virtual puppet while the people in front of the big screen watched. Google Cast is all well and good for when everyone's under the same roof. And once you've captured the shot you want, it will sync with your Google Photos account to share online at your leisure.
