At this year's Google I/O conference, there was some exciting news with regards to Google virtual reality. When it comes to VR, the technology company is known for its accessible Cardboard headset, but a new headset and motion controller design has been introduced that will support its new Daydream virtual reality platform for Android mobiles.

Unlike the Google Cardboard headset that fits any phone, the new headset will only work with select phones that can deliver high-quality VR experiences for Android. Google is currently collaborating with HBO, Ubisoft and the NBA to create rich app experience for its upcoming Daydream platform.

The all-new VR headset from Google is set to rival Facebook's high-end Oculus Rift and Samsung's Gear VR, as well as other competing models.
