Google Is Working on a Standalone Virtual and Augmented Reality Headset

After scrapping plans for an Oculus Rift competitor, Google is back in the lab working on a new device that looks to incorporate both virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) into the same headset. Though it’s not clear what the headset will look like yet, it could come close to designs of Microsoft’s HoloLens or the Oculus Rift. The company plans to move away from Android-powered experiences to include more substantial hardware that won’t require the use of a mobile phone or computer to function. In the past, Google has worked with AR, and with the success of Pokemon Go in the last week, it’s safe to say the people are ready for an augmented reality future.
