Galaxy S8, S8+ Will Support Daydream VR Later This Year

Google is about to take the wraps off its answer to Facebook's Oculus

At this year's Google I/O event, Qualcomm announced its collaborative design with Google to create a standalone VR headset based on the Daydream VR platform.

Donald Trump Putting US Intelligence Ties At Risk
Trump, said in a television interview Tuesday that he "would like a little less drama from the White House on a lot of things". If the President comes to a considered judgment that something should be revealed, it is "his call to make, constitutionally".

One of the key changes will be an updated interface: Google wants Daydream VR to become more of a full-featured operating system.

Meanwhile, HTC has also confirmed to release the new Daydream VR headset. It's a standalone headset, meaning you don't have to connect it to a PC or any other device, which comes with the added benefit of being wireless. Google announced the new VR headset during its annual Google I/O conference for developers in Mountain View, Calif. LG's next flagship phone, expected to launch later this year, will also support Daydream. The all-in-one headset will require neither a phone nor a PC to operate and combined with the six degrees of freedom, this could well enable it to give users a first of its kind VR experience. The new platform is now on the works and the new VR is scheduled to come out later this year via HTC and Lenovo.

We haven't exactly heard much with regards to Daydream from Google's partners since the project was first announced past year, with the only high-profile devices being Google's own Pixel devices, the LG G6, Moto Z family and the ASUS ZenFone AR.

"The whole device is designed just for VR", Clay Bavor, Google's head of VR, was quoted by the FT as saying.

The Roseanne Revival Lands at ABC
Roseanne aired for nine series in the 80s and 90s, and was praised for its realistic portrayal of a working-class American family. As for the question of which Becky will return, the answer is both of them.

Google didn't provide many details of what the actual finished product will look like, other than showing a very minimalist sketch. This essentially describes how Google's Tango system works and that is likely the base code for the new platform called WorldSense.
