This is a 6DoF standalone VR headset, containing everything you need for VR in one piece of hardware (unlike Samsung GearVR which requires a separate phone, or Oculus Rift which requires a Windows PC). Notably, it’s a 6DoF headseat which means it has full positional tracking of your head, allowing you to duck, lean, and walk around. This is unlike most mobile and standalone VR headsets, which are only 3DoF, which is only capable of tracking the rotations of your head.
This headset is part of Google’s Daydream platform, which means all Daydream VR apps will run on this headset. Priced at approximately $400 with a Q2 2018 launch, this is a very exciting headset. Pay attention!
