Google Reinforces Virtual Reality Team
They’re seeing the big picture. The tech giant has tasked Clay Bavor, VP for product management, with focusing exclusively on virtual reality. The move is designed to build on the company’s thrifty Cardboard program and help them compete with Facebook, Microsoft and Sony, which have already launched major initiatives in user-enveloping interfaces. That’s expected to include the launch of new hardware akin to Facebook’s Oculus headset — though it may not emerge for several years, meaning Google is committing long-term to the virtual becoming a reality.
