Other people at Google making VR platform that’s not Daydream

More Googlers have come to the press under a shroud of secrecy to let the public know that the company does have a strategy in VR besides the Android-based Daydream platform. This follows Re/code’s reporting from its sources that one such project at Alphabet’s X research labs had been canceled in favor of Daydream development.

From Engadget’s sources at Google, it seems that upper management has been placing employees onto the project, telling them that Daydream isn’t really the company’s far vision for VR and AR. The headset will be self-run and focused on providing augmented reality elements for interfaces rather than gaming.

Rumors outed Google’s ambitions for a competing product to Microsoft’s HoloLens since February, but it’s not clear at this point what anything entails, if the project we heard of then is the same one we’re talking about now and if we can expect any fruition for the time being.
