Expedition Recount

Today, on Tuesday the 24th of November, the students from room 10 went to room 3 to do a workshop. The workshop was provided by Google.

When we got to room 3, we knocked on the door and went inside. On each of the tables, I saw cardboard spectacles with a phone in a slot. We sat down on the ground and listened to the supervisor, Maru talk. He explained what our workshop was going to be, and he told us the rules. Then he told us to get a spectacle each and find our own space somewhere in the room.

We put our spectacles up to our eyes and waited for our teacher to choose the location to go to. Basically, the glasses and the phone was some kind of app that allowed someone to choose a location. Once the location was chosen, we could see that location through our glasses as if we were there.

It was really cool, and I felt really privileged to use that technology before it was released in the Google App Store. I would like to thank the arrangers for the opportunity to try out the lovely piece of engineering.
