Google Cardboard could be getting a mark two version later this month, a new report suggests.
The company first unveiled the cardboard VR headset at the annual Google I/O developer conference last year, giving users a budget way to tap into the virtual reality scene.
The company will “announce some things around Cardboard that aren’t made of cardboard,” Google’s Clay Bavor was reported as saying.
This could be the first sign of a plastic headset being in the works, as opposed to the current budget cardboard model.
Bavor is the Google employee recently reported to be in charge of turning Android into a virtual reality operating system.
According to the man himself, Cardboard is just the beginning of Google’s VR efforts, reportedly stating: “Our ambitions don’t end there.”

It’s good to hear that Google hasn’t given up on virtual reality just yet, particularly as the industry is now growing rapidly.
Google hasn’t dabbled in VR beyond cardboard just yet, but it’s showed off considerable efforts in augmented reality a la Google Glass.
What’s more, Google is expected to reveal a family of products around Glass at some point in the future, so we could certainly see more consolidated virtual reality offerings as a result.
