Trailer photo from Google JUMP. The big things from Google I/O I think are Brillo, JUMP, Project Soli and Jacquard.

  1. Android M
    • App privilege control: something that iOS has 2~4 years ago…
    • Chrome enhancement: tabs & autopassword, something that iOS has 2~4 years ago…
    • Send to app: something that iOS has 2~4 years ago…
    • Android Pay: something that iOS has 1 year ago…
    • Fingerprint: something that iOS has 1 year ago…
    • Battery Management: auto shut down some apps is great
  2. Brillo
    • New OS for the Internet of Things
  3. Google Photos
    • Unlimited storage now
  4. JUMP
    • This is the BIGGEST thing for VR
    • The magic here is in the stitching process. Bavor says that Google uses a huge array of servers to combine those 16 videos into an experience that isn’t just seamless, but fully stereoscopic, which requires a slightly different camera angle for each eye.
    • However, from my perspective, Google is already late and their apparatus is a little larger compared with 360 Heros and PanoCam3D
    • In addition, I think the 4k video quality is not as good as what I saw from 360 Heros (The indoor Santa stereo 360 4k video). Hopefully they can improve the stitching or just buy the above two companies
    • Still, I am looking forward to JUMP this summer!
  5. Cardboard
    • Old news, 1 million users now
    • Fit any phone now!
  6. Android Wear
    • Shopping list on your wrist, watch; map around neighborhood; sketch and emoji on the Android watch.
    • Wrist interaction is an old concept as for CHI, but Google made it commercially available.
  7. Project Soli
    • Project Soli is developing a new interaction sensor using radar technology. The sensor can track sub-millimeter motions at high speed and accuracy. It fits onto a chip, can be produced at scale and built into small devices and everyday objects.
  8. Project Jacquard
    • Project Jacquard presents a new system for weaving technology into fabric, transforming everyday objects, like clothes, into interactive surfaces.

      Google I/O 2015 – A little badass. Beautiful. Tech and human. Work and love. ATAP.
