Google expanded its Cardboard VR efforts with the announcement of its Daydream project at I/O yesterday. But while manufacturers are working off of the reference designs for the requisite headset and controller right now, Google itself has gone on to confirm that it’s making its own headset and controller.
Clay Bavor, chief of VR at the company, made the announcement at an I/O presentation called “VR at Google”. It’s the second original manufacturing push for Mountain View in recent history, at least when it comes to mobile — it had designed and built the Pixel C tablet last year.
We’ll need to learn more details to see what kind of customization manufacturers can elect to include in their headgear and handgear, but until then, what do you think Google will produce? Barebones simplicity or full-bore VR mania?
