Google might be making a high end VR

Virtual Reality is becoming a thing of the present with many companies including tech giants Microsoft and Facebook coming out with their virtual reality devices. Google also jumped into this market with their Cardboard, though for a company that innovates and creates technology such as self driving cars and enhanced glasses, cardboard seems out of date and almost irrelevant. Which is why it was big news when entrepreneur and tech journalist Peter Rojas tweeted that Google will be announcing Android VR.

 

Rojas also states that Android VR will be less powerful than the HTC Vive or the Oculus Rift.

Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive cost around $300 and are bulky this is one of the reasons why Cardboard was so popular, you can get one for $15, insert your phone and start using it. In the past Google has spent more efforts in getting developers to produce VR content. The price and the ease of use with the Cardboard is what it seems like Google is following.

Samsung is currently one of the cheapest and best options for Smartphone VRs coming in at $99, though the only problem is that you have to have a Galaxy or Note device to use the Gear VR headset. Though that did not stop the popularity of the VR headset, Samsung had more than one million users on the Gear VR last month.

We’ll have to wait and see at Google I/O just how Google will make an affordable yet powerful VR that can deliver high end optics.
