Google is once again challenging developers to make the best use of Android, and giving away I/O invitations to the most unique submissions.
Via the Android Experiments Challenge, developers can submit their take on best use cases for Android. It can be just about anything, so long as it adheres to Google’s very vague and basic requirements:
- Creative uses of Android’s new or distinctive features
- Projects that explore how users interact with their devices
- Unique visual aesthetics
- Open source projects
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
The only hard and fast rule seems to be that projects are open source; outside of that, it’s completely open season for Android developers.
