Android is moving from mobile devices to virtual-reality headsets, according to a new report. The Wall Street Journal, citing two unnamed sources, reported Friday that Google has tasked a group of engineers with developing a version of Android to power VR applications. “Tens of engineers” are working on the project, according to the Journal, which will be freely distributed like its cousins for smartphones, tablets, and wearables.

The move comes in the wake of Facebook’s $2 billion purchase of Oculus and Oculus’ subsequent move to develop new forms of storytelling powered by VR. VR dominated this week’s Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, where a new headset from Valve and progress on Sony’s Project Morpheus were among the biggest developments.[via theverge.com]

    Finally we will have some good, healthy premium competition, I reckon will soon see VR devices coming mainstream and with more affordable prices.
