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.
To better understand the display and the presentation space we built a custom WebGL viewer that allowed us to prototype our keynote animations in a realtime 3d environment, right in the browser. It allowed us to iterate quickly on our ideas and gave our clients a chance to see it all come together long before the display system was physically assembled.
