Earlier today we looked at a few things that Google might come up with at the I/O event that’s going to take place this week with rumours that the company might be gearing up for the launch of a standalone VR headset and from what it looks like we think we were right at speculating the same.
According to the US Patent & Trademark Office, Google has enlisted the term WORLDSENSE on the 9th of this month which links itself to virtual reality headsets and computer software/hardware. Nothing has been made certain on how the company is going to style the word, it could be WorldSense or simply Worldsense.
Since nothing is interesting when bring referred to computer hardware and computer software cause let’s face it, it’s Google I/O and anything we witness there is going to be related to computers. What interests us is the part where the newly trademarked device associates itself to VR headsets. A standalone VR would mean that the headset won’t even need a phone to be connected with and would stand as tall as the company’s own DayDream headset.
From what we have gathered from the past, Google has talked about a potential new headset which could flaunt inside-out tracking. This means that the device would be able to locate you in space without using additional external hardware for the same. The term WorldSense could just be the right name for such a device, but that’s just what we think it might be and we’d want you to take this news with a pinch of salt and wait for what the company has planned for at the Google I/O which is just a few days away.
