Standalone Daydream headsets
Google’s Daydream VR platform has largely felt neglected since its launch at the last I/O, but it received a fresh injection of energy this year. While the initial Daydream devices required a compatible Android phone for its smarts and screen, standalone versions are now on the way, including devices created by Lenovo and HTC – the creator of the Vive headset for PCs.
The original version’s still around, though. In fact, Samsung’s Galaxy S8 phones will be receiving a software update to become Daydream compatible later this summer.
