Google Working On HoloLens Style Tetherless & Smartphone Free VR Device

VR headsets come in two different forms. Either they are powered by a smartphone with which you insert into the vr headset (such as the Gear VR) or they are tethered to a powerful PC (such as the forthcoming Oculus Rift and HTC Vive) or games console (the PlaystationVR). Apparently Google is at work on an advanced virtual reality headset that is mobile yet does not require a smartphone inside. Sources suggest it may also be capable of both virtual reality and augmented/mixed reality, thus a kind of combination of the HoloLens and Oculus Rift.
