Google may finally be releasing an Android-powered VR headset at Google I/O 2016

In other VR news today, word on the virtual street is that Google may be gearing up to release an Android-powered Virtual Reality headset of their own at next week’s Google I/O 2016. This wouldn’t be a massive surprise or anything if it actually came to pass, since this is the next logical step from Google Cardboard in the world of VR headset evolution.

Erik Finman is the person behind a new VR headset that has just launched onto IndieGoGo for additional funding in order to get it manufactured and eventually shipped out to people interested in it. Outside of the Big 3 VR headsets, those being the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and the Samsung Gear VR, there are plenty of other headsets available for folks to try out. However, The Marvel, as this headset is called, actually has a few features that set it apart from the plethora of other headsets out there.
