At Google’s VR Keynote this morning, Google’s VP, Google VR took to the stage for a deeper dive into Google’s VR plans, including their hardware and software options.

Software wise, Google will be introducing new DayDream Labs and DayDream playground to help developers learn alongside Google as they explore VR, but the hardware plans for Google also came to light.

Mr Bavor announced that alongside hardware built to Google’s Daydream spec being released by partners from Samsung, HTC, LG, Xiaomi, Huawei, ZTE, Asus and Alcatel, Google will be releasing their own headset and controller and making it available.

While no details on pricing or specific availability dates of the controller and headset were made available, the same ‘Fall’ time-frame was given for all hardware announcements.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
