Google is working on a virtual reality headset to take on Facebook's Oculus and Samsung's Gear VR, according to a new report. But in Google's case, the software is what's important.
Google is pushing farther into virtual reality, as it's planning a VR headset that will rival the Facebook Oculus and Samsung Gear VR, reports Tim Bradshaw of the Financial Times.
Google has shipped more than 5 million units of its Cardboard headset that uses sensors and a smartphone to provide an introductory virtual reality experience. Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg suspects it's the next big thing.
