    Also interesting, is their standalone VR Daydream headsets that are like an amalgamation of what Microsoft is doing with its Windows Mixed Reality, but only the standalone version of it. HTC as one of the manufacturers is pretty big, too. The inside out tracking sounds similar to Win MR, as well.

    I think a lot of people were expecting a passive AR/MR display to be shown here, at this event, though. It seems like the technology is really farther back than anyone really thought. We know that they have been working on it since early on, as they shot first with the underwhelming Google Glass. I have to wonder how Apple is coming along, now. This is perhaps one of the most important competitions for the future of these companies right now, imo.
