Android VR coming next week - new Google headset

It seems that Google wants to get even more heavily involved with virtual reality, with the company set to launch a new headset.

Early reports are suggesting and an Android VR headset will be announced at Google I/O next week. It would be a different kind of model to the likes of the Vive and Oculus Rift and also distinct from Google Cardboard and other types that use a smartphone.

Instead Android VR will be a standalone unit with its own processing power. The intention is to bridge the cap between something like the Gear VR and Oculus Rift, and hopefully that also means keeping costs down.

If the quality is reasonably high it's a good move by Google. Many people will rightly be put off by the cost of premium level VR right now and those who experience it first using something like the very cheap Google Cardboard won't really be seeing the full potential of the format.

The info comes from tech reporter Peter Rojas who seems very confident in his insider news.
