Google launched an SDK for iOS devs who want to build apps for Google Cardboard today, right at the start of Microsoft’s annual developer event in San Francisco.
Google’s project is the lowest end of VR, but allows people to dip their toes into virtual reality without committing to spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on a full setup.
A new era of tech events has begun
We’re back in New York this November for the 4th edition of our growth-focused technology event.
However, until now, it hasn’t been easy for iOS devs to build apps for Cardboard.
Google says the toolkit simplifies a whole lot of tasks, such as including spatial audio, head tracking for deeper immersion in the experience and 3D calibration, among others.
“We’re keeping the hardware and software open to encourage community participation and compatibility with VR content available elsewhere,” Google said.
