Google Cardboard supports both Android and iOS, fitting phones up to 6-inches, requires just three steps to fold together, and uses a new button to simplify the process of using it across phones. And, of course, it’s still made of cardboard.
To bring virtual reality to education, Cardboard’s Expeditions allows teachers to receive a box filled with Google Cardboard units, phones, and a teacher tablet — allowing for field trips, to everywhere, for just about any classroom.
To record and share virtual reality, GoPro partnered with Google to produce a 360 degree camera array, to be part of the Jump initiative: to easily record, share, and catalog stereoscopic VR video.
YouTube will support Jump, which means that VR experiences will be possible through the app, with Google Cardboard and a phone being the tools needed.
