I am posting this not because the thought of VR is cool (it truly is!), but because this use of Android OS is a clear indication that Google’s plans for their platform extend far beyond smartphones and tablets.

Google is competing with Apple, Microsoft and every other developer and tech firm; not bad for a company that started by just being the next webcrawler.
