- If there’s one thing that’s been consistently annoying about the current virtual reality renaissance it’s that almost all of the available devices require you to stay tethered to another device, like a PC or PlayStation 4 with a wire.
- But virtual reality may be about to break free from those chains.
- Yesterday at Google I/O 2017 conference, Google and HTC announced the upcoming release of a new standalone Vive headset powered by Google’s Daydream virtual reality platform.
- The technology isn’t just limited to HTC, as Google announced that Lenovo is also making a standalone device with Daydream tech.
- After months of sluggish sales, a competent standalone device from one of the most successful virtual reality headset makes to date could be just want the virtual reality industry needs.
