Google Expands Cardboard Availability
Google today made its Cardboard app available to more countries and more languages. Google says the app can be used across 39 languages in more than 100 countries around the world. Moreover, Google added 10 languages to the Cardboard SDK so more developers can create virtual reality apps for Cardboard. Google says a number of open-source Cardboard designs are available to do-it-yourselfers, in addition to the manufactured viewers from Mattel, Zeiss, and others. The updated SDK (for developers) improves sensor algorithms and performance, and also delivers smoother rendering on Android and iOS devices. Google says Cardboard is available within more apps, too, such as Google Street View, so people can immerse themselves in different areas around the word. The Google Cardboard app is free to download from the Google Play Store.
