Daydream believer

Googles cardboard project looked to be the prototype for its future VR platform, in the shape of a generic headset into which compatible Android VR devices are slotted, rather than an Oculus Rift style dedicated device. However, recently there was speculation Google had scrapped a project to create this stand-alone VR headset.

It was even rumored a separate operating system is being designed to power the device. It seems things have moved on in the same direction as was suggested at this years Google I/O, with Daydream and the Android VR spec powering Googles future VR projects.

Word is Google are incredibly busy internally with VR, so the move is also logical given the market dominance on smartphones which Android already enjoys.
