Google Tech C1-Glass VR Viewer 3

Google has been pushing the widespread adoption of virtual reality for a few years now, so it’s no surprise to see the company has finally created a dedicated virtual reality section in the Google Store. In this section you’ll be able to download notable VR applications, as well as purchase a handful of virtual reality viewers directly from Google. You can buy the standard Google Cardboard headset for $15, Mattel’s View-Master VR starter pack for $29.99, as well as the Goggle Tech C1-Glass VR Viewer for $15.

At the moment there’s no link to the VR section at the top of the Google Store navigation bar, though there is a giant banner on the Google Store homepage directing users to the new section. It’s probably only a matter of time until this section gets added to the top of the site.

Rumors have been floating around recently claiming that Google might soon release a rival to Samsung’s Gear VR headset, to be released later this year. The company also may be working on a standalone headset that won’t require a smartphone or a computer to use. It’s possible we might get our first glance at Google’s new VR products at Google I/O this year, but nothing is for certain quite yet.
