Google launching VR education app Expeditions
Google is launching a new Expeditions App and all people need is a Cardboard or Daydream headset and an Android phone so as to explore the nearly 600 available tours.
Google has long sold its Cardboard VR format as a super-accessible platform for getting people into virtual reality. One of their major initiatives for it has been in education markets through its Google Expeditions program, which allows students to get in the center of 360-degree photos and 3D scenes with historical importance.
Today, the company announced it is opening the educational VR tours to the public through a new Expeditions App. All you need is a Cardboard or Daydream headset and an Android phone.
While Expeditions was always built with classrooms in mind, the app will introduce a solo mode that allows people to explore the nearly 600 available tours on their own.
The app is Android-only for now, though the company says that it will be arriving on iOS soon, as well.
