Get ready for a VR browsing experience with Daydream Euphrates

If one is using a Google Pixel XL device, the experience will most likely be unbridled and exceptional.

Google has officially confirmed a year's worth of rumours, stating that it is indeed building a standalone virtual reality headset based on its Daydream platform.

The main difference from the current Daydream VR headset is that the new standalone device will not require a connection to a PC or a smartphone as it will have all the needed hardware built in. When streaming, you will not be able to experience the immersive stereoscopic effect that you normally do in various other situations, but we are sure that you can brush this off easily.

Hackers hold Disney for ransom over new Pirates of the Caribbean movie
Disney apparently refuses to pay, and is working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation , according to Deadline . Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is scheduled for worldwide release on the 26th of May, 2017.

Google is ramping up its work on virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR respectively) with its Daydream platform, having added support for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and revealed partnerships with Lenovo and HTC to build standalone headsets. At this year's event, the tech giant announced a key update to its virtual reality (VR) platform, which will see standalone Daydream VR headsets operating without reliance on smartphones or PCs. HTC hopes to hurdle that barrier with the introduction of a new Vive headset that doesn't require a computer or phone. "Everything that you need for VR is contained in the headset itself". This enables positional tracking, meaning the headset tracks the user's movements in space without the need for external sensors. "Getting into VR is as easy as picking the thing up". The latter caught Google's liking and now in standalone Daydream VR headsets, these Qualcomm processors have been integrated with Google's tracking technology.

There's also Seurat - named after the French post-Impressionist painter - a technology which allows for high-fidelity scenes to be rendered on mobile VR headsets. While GPS provides directions to a place, a device with VPS can direct the user directly to objects, such as an item in a store. The technology uses several sensors included in the device to make the virtual experience match the real world, as much as it can.
