Google Planning to Release New VR Headset This Year

Google is developing a new VR headset and is expected to be released this year, according to a report from the Financial Times. This headset will be the successor to the company’s first dip into VR – Google Cardboard, and feature better sensors, lenses and a more solid plastic.

This new headset is said to be similar to Samsung’s Gear VR, where a smartphone will be needed for the headset. Google’s headset will be compatible with a broader range of smartphones compared to the Gear VR, which only works with a handful of the latest Samsung Galaxy smartphones.

Google is also hoping to improve the quality of VR experiences in mobile devices by embedding new software directly into its Android smartphone operating system. One way they can improve smartphone VR experiences is to lessen the chance users have of experiencing nauseousness and dizziness. These symptoms can occur because of images being displayed on the headset have a slight delay to the user’s head movements or due the use of a low resolution screen.

Along with Google’s new VR headset, the Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR and the HTC Vive are also scheduled to be released this year.

So are you looking forward to seeing Google’s newest VR headset? Let us know in the comments below.
