According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, Google has Android version for virtual reality in the works. The new build will allow the search giant to compete with the likes of Facebook, which recently acquired Oculus for $2 billion.
Android for VR will be freely distributed just like its sibling for smartphones and tablets. Google has reportedly committed tens of engineers to the project. Two of the engineers behind Google Cardboard are said to be leading the project.
No timeline on the release of Android VR has been mentioned. I won't be surprised if we hear more about the platform during this year's Google I/O.
Tech analyst, John Gruber, has a good reputation when it comes to leaking information about Apple devices. So when he says to expect the long-awaited Apple iWatch to finally see the light of day next month, there is a very good chance that it will actually happen. Apple is holding an event on September 9th that is expected to unveil the Apple iPhone 6. It is possible that the iWatch will also be introduced at that time.
By July of last year, Apple had trademarked the iWatch name in a number of countries. The wearable is expected to come out of the box with a number of sensors that will allow it to capture health-related metrics such as heart rate, blood pressure and possibly blood glucose readings. That information can be sent to Apple's Health app, where it will be analyzed. The app will debut on iOS 8.
