Bringing the future of virtual reality to the big stage for Google I/O 15.
In 2014, Google announced Cardboard, a ingenious cardboard viewer that had the power to bring Virtual Reality to the masses. Since then the VR team at Google has been pushing Cardboard to bold new frontiers. And they came to us for help to launch the next big step, specifically the Keynote at Google I/O 15.
We documented actual classrooms around the world that were a part of the Expeditions pilot program, capturing the magical moment when students and teachers alike used the app for the first time.
It all came together to a 10 minute presentation, the finale of the Keynote at Google I/O15.
The display system was the largest yet. A 600 feet seamless display that wrapped around the audience of 4000 developers and reporters at the Moscone Center West in San Francisco. Google Cardboard is all about immersion and we wanted to use this screen as a medium to immerse the audience into our story. By utilizing the whole canvas at key moments we were able to transport our audience and give them a taste of what using Google Cardboard is like.
Google Cardboard quickly became the highlight of the keynote for I/O 15 for many people and we can't wait to see what experience people will build for it.
