Google adds design oomph to virtual reality unit as Apple enters the fray
Now that Google has an official virtual reality division, it’s shuttling more Googlers into it.
The company has moved around 10 employees to a dedicated design team for VR, including Joshua To, a design lead for the apps unit, according to sources. A Google rep confirmed To’s move, but didn’t comment further.
Design is a critical element for Google’s success in VR. Most of the VR devices on the market, or coming soon, are considered lacking in their accessibility and aesthetic. And Google may face inordinate pressure to deliver here. (Remember Glass?)
