Now that Google support game recording on android, I thought I'd share what I've been working on for the last few weeks.  It's a prototype demo for first person controls for google cardboard VR, made in Unity.  

The idea is that you can move forward and back by looking down and up respectively, tilting left and right sidesteps, and the magnet trigger button is used as a handbrake to come to a complete stop. 
 
(Sorry I've no idea how to minimise or remove the Google Games icon.)

I was late for work this morning because I got absorbed reading this article.
Computers match or surpass top humans in a wide variety of games: Othello, Scrabble, backgammon, poker, even <em>Jeopardy</em>. But not Go. It's the one classic game where wetware still dominates hardware.

'Consumers think category first and brand second. Nobody walks into a Best Buy and says, "I want to buy a Sony."

Would a prospective customer then say: "I don't know. Why don't you show me all the Sonies you have in stock and I'll decide which Sony to buy?"'
