At last year’s Google I/O developers conference, Google actually showed off several applications created specifically for virtual reality. Besides apps for Cardboard, there was also a short film drawn by former Disney animator Glen Keane.Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects team converted the “Duet” drawings to a 360 degree film that could be viewed on phones.
While everyone has been busy racing to build the best virtual reality headset, a leading operating system has yet to emerge. It’s currently a fragmented space that feels secondary to creating games and other content. Google is obviously in a good place to develop a respectable option.
If Sony’s Playstation (PS4) or HTC Vive (& Valve) and Google make an agreement on “developing” the virtual world,soon there will be people roaming happily on the virtual streets.
