Google plans to announce a new virtual reality headset at its annual I/O developers conference Wednesday, Janko Roettgers of Variety reports.
Unlike Google’s current Daydream View headset that requires a phone to work, this will be a standalone device similar to what we’ve seen with Facebook’s Oculus Rift and HTC’s Vive.
The headset is also said to have inside-out tracking, which means users won’t have to install sensors around the room to track their movements.
Microsoft has touted inside-out tracking in its HoloLens and other third-party Windows VR headsets as a key differentiator from the competition. Oculus is also working an inside-out tracking headset.
