Google has allegedly shifted gears on a high-end stand-alone virtual reality headset that was meant to directly compete with Oculus Rift. In May, Google revealed Daydream, a mobile virtual reality platform. Sources now say the company plans to implement a different version as part of a larger hardware push. The updated plans include a screen and won’t require a computer or phone to power it. However, the device will be more in line with augmented reality than current virtual reality headsets.
