There are reports that Apple is working on its VR device in stealth mode. Facebook has already priced its VR device, Oculus Rift at $599. HTC has scheduled to begin the pre-orders of Vive from February 29th. In the wake of all these reports, this decision by Google to handle its Virtual Reality ventures with a dedicated division isn’t surprising as its competitors are already miles ahead than Google in the Virtual Reality world. And therefore, it will be interesting to see what Bavor will do to bring Google on par with its opponents.
Google has already Cardboard in its shelves to talk about its achievements in Virtual Reality. Cardboard allows you to have a VR experience at a small price. While it saves a lot of money in your pocket, Cardboard is not on par with Facebook’s Oculus Rift or HTC’s Vive. Therefore, Google is likely to come up with a new device that would match its rivals VR devices.
