    "Wait until you see this footage in VR. Near things look near, far things look far."
  • Scott Stein 5/28/2015 6:41:19 PM
    Clouds Over Sidra showed me how impactful VR films can be. This is exciting for filmmakers and video teams.

    We're told this takes "thousands" of computers to assemble, so it's not something you'll be doing on your own just yet.
  • Scott Stein 5/28/2015 6:41:34 PM
    (I told you)
  • Richard Nieva 5/28/2015 6:41:34 PM

    Google's going to work with some partners, and YouTube will support the resulting videos.
  • Scott Stein 5/28/2015 6:42:00 PM
    YouTube is the natural place for Google's VR to live.
  • Tim Stevens 5/28/2015 6:42:18 PM
    All of this will be available this summer, and Bavor is excited to see what we do with it.
  • Tim Stevens 5/28/2015 6:42:20 PM
    I am, too...
  • James Martin 5/28/2015 6:42:32 PM
  • Tim Stevens 5/28/2015 6:42:39 PM
    Bavor is off the stage, Pichai is back.

    "Cardboard is about VR for absolutely everyone."
  • Scott Stein 5/28/2015 6:42:48 PM
    Very cool. Not huge, but nice steps. And shows Google is fully in the VR picture.
  • Tim Stevens 5/28/2015 6:42:54 PM
    "It's really exciting to see what we can do to bring the real world alive to users in an immersive way."
  • Scott Stein 5/28/2015 6:43:01 PM
    Substantive, versus flash.
  • James Martin 5/28/2015 6:43:26 PM
  • Tim Stevens 5/28/2015 6:43:27 PM
    "I often get asked how do search, Android, Photos, and things like this relate to each other. To us, at Google, it's about putting computer science to work in important places."
  • Scott Stein 5/28/2015 6:43:28 PM
    Good-bye, VR
  • Tim Stevens 5/28/2015 6:43:32 PM
    He's mentioning driverless cars now.
  • Richard Nieva 5/28/2015 6:43:39 PM
    "It's about putting Google to work on important problems," Pichai says.
  • Tim Stevens 5/28/2015 6:43:49 PM
    He says almost 100 people die every day, and that's something Google wants to fix.

    Their cars have covered over a million miles without causing a single accident.
  • Tim Stevens 5/28/2015 6:44:14 PM
    (They've been involved in quite a few, though... just not their fault.)
  • James Martin 5/28/2015 6:44:28 PM
  • Tim Stevens 5/28/2015 6:44:35 PM
    We're getting a glimpse at the computer vision systems in these cars, now. "It's incredible computer science at work that makes a difference."
  • James Martin 5/28/2015 6:44:46 PM
  • Tim Stevens 5/28/2015 6:44:53 PM
    Now, Loon, Google's project to provide connectivity via balloon.
  • Richard Nieva 5/28/2015 6:45:02 PM
    THERE'S the Loon shout out I was looking for earlier.
  • James Martin 5/28/2015 6:45:03 PM
  • Tim Stevens 5/28/2015 6:45:21 PM
    Loon can provide 10Mbps speeds to an area the size of Rhode Island, and they can spend 100 days in the air.

    They're being tested in New Zealand now, and Google is partnering and discussing with companies like Telefonica and Telestra.
  • Tim Stevens 5/28/2015 6:46:05 PM
    "Using technology at work to solve problems for everyone in the world. This is why I/O is so exciting for us."
  • Tim Stevens 5/28/2015 6:46:18 PM
    "I can't wait to see what you build next year."
  • Tim Stevens 5/28/2015 6:46:23 PM
    That's it, we're done in here!
  • Richard Nieva 5/28/2015 6:46:26 PM
    And there you have it. That's it
  • Richard Nieva 5/28/2015 6:46:43 PM
    I guess the only giveaway is Cardboard
