Google Cardboard Offers Virtual Reality On The Cheap—Really Cheap

first_imgTags:#Facebook#Google#Google I/O#Google I/O 2014#Oculus Rift#virtual reality#VR Google doled out free smartwatches running Android Wear at its I/O 2014 developer event today, but that’s not all. The company also handed out … cardboard. Yes, really. Google encouraged a room full of thousands of developers and hundreds of press-types to take little sheets of cardboard and fold them into kind of nifty (if thrifty) virtual reality viewers. Unlike the pricier bits of I/O swag, those at home can play along too. Assuming you weren’t lucky enough to get a cardboard kit at I/O, to build one of Google’s low-tech VR goggles you’ll need materials that would be at home in a MacGyver scene. Start with cardboard ($8.70 … or a pizza box?), biconvex lenses ($28) and magnets ($3.98, $2.59), then add Velcro ($2.98), a rubber band (free!) and an optional NFC tag ($1.50). That’s a grand total of about $50 worth of stuff ($47.75, to be exact), assuming you don’t have it all laying around the house.Of course, you’ll need a compatible new-ish Android smartphone, too.For developers interested in building virtual reality experiences that aren’t cost prohibitive, Google’s Cardboard project (that’s actually the name for it) comes with its very own “experimental” VR software development kit. Aside from the Nexus Q, Cardboard might be the weirdest pseudo-product that the company has ever launched, though its goals are arguably nobler than that entertainment bowling ball of yoreIn a blog post about the project, Google explains its intentions:Virtual reality has made exciting progress over the past several years. However, developing for VR still requires expensive, specialized hardware. Thinking about how to make VR accessible to more people, a group of VR enthusiasts at Google experimented with using a smartphone to drive VR experiences.The result is Cardboard, a no-frills enclosure that transforms a phone into a basic VR headset, and the accompanying open software toolkit that makes writing VR software as simple as building a web or mobile app. 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout taylor hatmaker 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App See also: Facebook Buys Oculus For $2B, Betting On Virtual Reality To Replace SmartphonesIt all sounds fun (if weird) on paper. As it turns out, though, thanks to Oculus (now owned by Facebook), sophisticated VR hardware dev kits actually aren’t all that expensive. The next generation Oculus Rift DK2 is $350—minimal assembly required. Cardboard works with most phones running Android 4.2 or higher, so once you get your “hardware” up and running, you’ll need to download the companion Android app. If you’re all aboard for Cardboard, there’s also a dedicated Google+ Cardboard community to nurture those zany, affordable VR ideas.We’re fans of fun hardware hacking projects. But at $50, we might just stick with what Oculus has cooking over at Facebook. Related Posts 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…last_img read more

10 practical ways to create work-life balance

first_imgWhat’s this — another work/life balance blog post? Yep. But! I promise I’m not going to try to get philosophical with you about how to juggle this and that. No thought exercises here. Instead, let’s be real: you probably have some habits that you could change to make your life a lot easier.Here are 10 practical ways to maintain work/life balance — and yes, you can make any or all of these changes today.1. Stop checking your email on your phone!Look, I know maybe no one’s told you this before, but… you look really dumb when you refresh your smartphone over and over waiting for new emails. Put that away, turn on alerts if you need to, and separate your email accounts — you don’t need all the emails, all the time. I promise.There. Hear that? That’s silence. Doesn’t it feel great?2. Stop half-assing your work!Multitasking is one thing, doing bad work is another. Stop half-assing your work and give it your complete energy — turn off the TV, close Gchat (I know, that cuts deep), and just do the thing. Feel like you’re flagging? Just take a break. Don’t try to pretend to work and get nothing done, while not allowing yourself a chance to relax.3. Cut out distractionsActually, why not just cut out distractions altogether? Unplug and work longhand for a while. Or use an app like Self Control to temporarily remove your access to the internet. Yes, it hurts. But this is good medicine.4. Use a timekeeping method to keep focused on your workWork/life balance is really all about timekeeping. So try a timekeeping method to stay focused on your work and hold yourself accountable. The pomodoro method is a personal favorite of mine, since my attention span’s so short. You can also try an app like Toggl or RescueTime if that’s your speed.5. Or use this time assets and debts method“A great way to manage productivity is to adapt your life and business to-do list into a balance sheet and approach actions or choices as either time assets or time debts. A time asset is an action or choice that will ultimately save you time in the future, whereas a time debt is an action or choice that will cost you additional time.”Join the nation’s largest group representing the new workforce (it’s free!)Become a member**6. Use the 45-15 method to get little things done **A constant source of annoyment: little errands. Emails, dishes, laundry, whatever. Use the 45-15 method to get all those pesky tasks done.7. Learn how to say no Say no in a way that gets you more projects, and you just made a whole bunch of time for yourself without lifting a finger.8. Maximize your income without doing more workSame reasoning here. If you can maximize your income without doing more work, you’ll automatically free up time for yourself. It’s not doing more work — it’s working smarter. And when you work smarter, you’re a lot happier.9. Join a coworking space or set up a home officeSometimes work/life imbalance arises when your work and your life are in the same place. Joining a coworking space is a great step toward setting some boundaries. But if that’s not your style, instead of working in your bedroom (or god forbid, your bed), try setting up a home office in your kitchen or living room. Or if all of those are the same thing, and if you live in New York, they probably are… move things around so that you have a new designated space to work. It doesn’t take much — just a change of location can help ease the tension between a heavy load and the need for free time.10. Plan vacations for yourselfIt sounds luxurious, but vacations are doable. And they help keep you sane. No, it doesn’t have to be a weeklong affair somewhere tropical, or even mean going out of town. Just scheduling — this is the key word here — a vacation from work means you’re setting aside time to chill out, recover, and gear up to get more great things done.Larissa Pham is an artist and writer based in Brooklyn, New York.
