Last week we were invited to a party Google was throwing for those involved in the recent Grow Local campaign which was designed to help businesses get on board with Google AdWords. Held at Europe’s largest multi-arts and conference venue, the Barbican in London. We had a great evening full of goodies, entertainment and a bit of technology, naturally.
We got our hands on our own Google Cardboard Virtual Reality system. And yes, it is just a piece of cardboard, but it is a cool piece of cardboard. The pack comes in flat-pack mode and allows you to place your smartphone into the device and be truly immersed in a virtual world. Hold the device and look in any direction and control your movements inside the virtual world. Ride on virtual rollercoasters, view museum exhibits, walk around stately homes, fly over Chicago or get immersed in a Paul McCartney concert (if that’s your thing…). Our custom paint job on the Google Cardboard leaves a little to be desired…
