Vive's Standalone Headset for Google Daydream

Today at Google I/O, the tech giant announced a new expansion of the Daydream mobile VR platform. It's also similar to Microsoft's Mixed Reality Headset development kits with inside-out tracking.

Microsoft has touted inside-out tracking in its HoloLens and other third-party Windows VR headsets as a key differentiator from the competition.

Also showcased was the Visual Positioning System, a sensing technology that remembers the position of things indoors and works in conjunction with the Google Maps. Samsung are one of the world's most popular smartphone manufacturers, especially in the west and are the creators of one of the Google Daydream's main competitors with the Samsung Gear VR.

Since Google launched Daydream past year, there's been a notable absence of phones that support the platform. Although the efforts of this new virtual reality ecosystem were seen previous year with the Daydream View, what's coming next is much more compelling.

Google will not be building these headsets itself. Google did not announce any specific release dates or prices. This lets Google and hardware makers customize the displays, optics, and sensors to be flawless for virtual reality, he said. "Just pick it up, put it on and be fully immersed in your new reality". "Vive's standalone VR headset will provide a deeper and more immersive portable VR experience than ever before".

Google also announced that Expeditions VR, the platform that lets students take virtual "field trips", will roll out to some schools through a Pioneer program this fall.
