Google is still working on VR goggles
Gossips suggesting that Google could well abandon the plan to create their own VR goggles proved to be untrue. Recent reports suggest that the online giant is still pursuing it, and it has been for months for engineers with relevant experience to help build it.
Facebook has Oculus Rifta, Sony is about to launch PlayStation VR, HTC along with Valve have developed HTC Vive, and Samsung has Gear VR. This is of course only the most well known devices, as many companies are working on their own technology that takes us to the virtual world.
Recode reported last week that the US giant has definitely abandoned the project and is releasing all 50 Google Gadgets engineers in Google X Labs. It turned out, however, that these reports are not true because they contradict the latest information from Engadget, whose editors claim that nothing in this matter has changed.
Google is still working on its own VR goggles and has been looking for engineers for a few months with the right knowledge to help build it. What's more, it is self-contained goggles which, unlike other devices of this type, will not require you to operate a smartphone or computer. The product is expected to make use of a combination of virtual and extended reality with a strong emphasis on video game functionality.
