As usual, Google handed out an array of freebies to attendees of its I/O conference, hoping to entice developers to build applications for its devices. Among them: a square smatchwatch—their choice of the LG G Watch or Samsung Gear Live, the round Moto 360 watch, and a piece of cardboard.
Though attendees were confused by the cardboard gesture, they soon realized the flat piece of pasteboard could be folded to construct a virtual-reality headset powered by an Android phone. And as with the smartwatches handed out, Google wants apps for Cardboard.
Simple, helpful and awesome… Frog’s design for an updated phone booth in NYC that better connects pedestrians with the city.
