Yes, Google is actually building its own Daydream virtual reality headset

TechCrunch TechCrunch 19/05/2016 Lucas Matney

Google dashed the rumor-fueled hopes and hype of many yesterday when it failed to bring any real VR hardware onstage and instead spent much of its time detailing the Daydream platform they would be pushing out with Android N this fall.

Today, the company announced that they will indeed be building a headset themselves based on the reference design they showed off yesterday (shown above).

“The first daydream-ready headsets and controllers will be rolling out [in the fall] from the reference design,” Google VR VP Clay Bavor said onstage at I/O. “And, by the way, it’s not just going to be partners building from the reference design, we, Google, are also going to build a controller and a headset and make it available.”
