Google Cardboard – A detailed insight of making and working


Have you ever wished for an immersive addictive 3D experience while using an app? Now you can make it a reality with Google Cardboard, the best virtual reality app viewer. Get Google Cardboard attached with your mobile and experience a dream come true with your smartphone.

What exactly is Google Cardboard?

It is a virtual reality device delivering a platform for 3D visual experience. It consists of a cardboard with a fold out for mounting it on your mobile phone. There are special VR applications experienced with the help of this cardboard letting you immersed completely in apps or games presenting a virtual world in front of your eyes. You can either purchase a readymade cardboard or assemble components mentioned on Google website to create one of your own.

Creating a Google Cardboard

As mentioned earlier, if you want to have a customized experience of your own, you can create the device by yourself. It is not that simple; however, with some help you can definitely create one. You need a rubber band, a Velcro made loop or hook fastener, capacitive taps or magnets, 45mm length focal lenses, and cardboard pieces of specific shapes as well as sizes. Find out how to create Google Cardboard following a systematic process.

Mounting the device

One you have assembled the kit or made a readymade purchase, it is time now to use it with your smartphone. Insert the smartphone towards the back of the device and hold it in place with a Velcro strap fastening it tight. This will held the device altogether with the phone. Once everything arranged, a specialized smartphone app will divide the screen display image into two for both eyes. The result is a stereoscopic 3D image because of barrel distortion countering pincushion distortion.

Why use Google Cardboard?

Google Cardboard’s VR experience is more than just enjoyable. Entering a whole new virtual reality world is something every techno savvy user has dreamed of. What we experienced was beyond expectations as Cardboard turned out to be even more than a mere do it yourself (DIY) toy. It might sound funny, but a combination of plastic lenses, magnets, Velcro strips, and cardboard, brought to the table an amazing visual treat, alarming the world regarding Google’s serious entry in virtual reality arena.

  • It is a real inexpensive device to experience virtual reality fun using any kind of smartphone device.
  • It is so cheaply available that it is affordable by anybody.
  • It is so simple to build and use that even a child can put it together.
  • It is so easy to handle due to its relatively lightweight that you can hold any large sized phone.
  • The kind of immersive experience it provides might be on a preliminary level, but it is highly accessible by anyone who has a smartphone and wants to gain entry into virtual reality world.
  • Positioning and head tracking within the device through gyroscopes and accelerometers is superbly responsive.
  • Apps you experience are absolutely sharp and bright that delivers a clear display.
  • It is a door to virtual reality through just a mobile phone.

A few drawbacks

  • Since it is extremely simple, it delivers a basic level 3D experience that cannot be compared with high-end VR goggles like Vive, Gear VR, or Oculus.
  • It is not a serious entry or even a threat to best in the class VR devices.
  • With most apps, you cannot move swiftly in all directions compromising on both speed and navigation largely.
  • Do not deliver VR experience for long hours use. The device meant for quick use only for a limited time, not for apps that are graphic heavy and the ones that drain too much battery.

The final verdict

Google Cardboard is fun, entertaining, and very inexpensive. Moreover, it can be used with any iOS or Android device. However, extremely simplistic experience will not match up to top notch virtual reality goggles. Without any doubt, the device surely acts as a brand ambassador promoting the use of virtual reality apps and devices on smartphone.

Fusion Informatics has been favoring such devices long since the inception and will continue to make apps for such devices promoting technological shifts with every passing year.


Trends in web design to expect in year 2016


Color plays a vital role when it comes to design, especially “web design.” Today, you can play around even with different formats of black and white color combination in terms of balance, contrast, hue, brightness, or more. Flat design has still maintained its prominence, and rainbow colors are in trend, with brighter tones coming up. Even the minimalist design is still popular as ever. With 2015 about to end, you can expect even more web design trends to show up in 2016.

  • Unique UI patterns

Hamburger menu encompasses all the menu tabs within a hamburger like icon. When you click on that, you get to know all the hidden tabs present. The design looks clean with such type of menu and besides you can see only what you need to see.

You can use long scrolling to place most important elements above fold, while rest present beneath to give a storytelling feel to the users. When users see the critical things present above, they are intrigued to know the details present beneath the fold.

Discovered by Pinterest, card layout let you present the content present on your website in form of cards. This type of layout has a strong visual appeal that connects with users greatly, and they are attracted to see more present on other site pages. Such type of layout provides easy visual scanning, going through important or relevant content in just minutes. They can be rearranged easily due to their square or rectangular shapes.

Killer images present on homepage, give a heroic appeal to the entire website. First page that a user lands upon is homepage. If there is a strong image present above fold, the user will be intrigued to see what the website has to offer in particular. With advances in data compression as well as internet bandwidth, HD images can be used with ease without compromising on loading time and performance. After scroll, you can find a zig zag, card based, or other kinds of content arrangement.

  • Rich interactive animations

Animations give rise to storytelling then can make the overall experience, entertaining, interactive, and with a storytelling approach. It can be diversified largely into two groups:

  1. Large Scale Animation Pop-up notifications, parallax scrolling, and other types of primary animations require user action to perform.
  2. Small Scale Animation Loading bars, hovering tools, and other types of secondary animations do not require user action to perform.
  • Micro interactions

Liking, sharing, commenting, or following something is what micro interactions is all about. Even small actions such as turning off mobile alarm, setting reminders, and such other things comprise of micro interactions. They might look small; however, they play an important role in giving a human touch to the entire conversation rather than having things automated. However, keeping micro interactions as simple as possible is wise. Each micro interaction gives rise to a design that is highly human centered.

  • Materialistic design “an enhanced alternative to flat design”

Last year, Google switched itself to Material Design. This type of design has the ability to present things in a more realistic manner by using the concepts of depth, movement, and shadow effects. The goal of such a design is to provide a modernized and clean appearance to flat design. Since material design is free of any particular frameworks, it can be easily implemented using various front-end tools, and it is lightweight when it comes to integrating with the code.

  • Responsive design “an answer to all sizes working theme”

Responsive design is probably the evergreen trend in web design that is here to stay for quite a long time. A relatively cheap and simple way for all kinds of businesses to have a mobile friendly website applicable to all screen sizes, no matter seen on desktops, laptops, tablets, or smartphones. By looking at the current trends in web design, responsive design appears to be more of a practice now rather than just another trend. It seems to be almost mandatory for businesses planning to switch to a responsive design website. There is no doubt in regards to the versatility and usefulness that responsive design tends to offer.

  • Flat design “most common web design theme of all”

Probably the most used design pattern by major businesses. It is so because it is highly compatible with other design patterns such as minimalist design, material design, or even responsive design. We do see some hot favorite trends in flat design and we can expect the same to continue even in 2016.

Long shadows give a tremendous amount of depth to the current flat designs.

Vibrant color schemes when used with varied templates and frameworks deliver a fresh look to user eyeballs. Hence, expect to see a potential rise even in the next year.

Use of extremely simple and legible typography make things clear, clean, and transparent ensuring that user reads them comfortably with great ease.

Ghost buttons serve purpose of delivering simple to use and easy to understand interface. They usually appear as outlined working as clickable links. As soon as user hovers over them, their appearance changes giving a stylized look, which you personally expect from a design.

Minimalist approach is making use of as few elements or components possible for letting users access only things that are useful without getting to know useless features or Call To Actions (CTAs). Such a design helps to keep things uncluttered without much cumbersome functionalities.

Would you like to expect more with 2016?

Do not follow trends thinking that they are in trend and needs to be in your design anyhow. Try to encompass only those ones that compliment your website and business objectives comfortably. Integrating trends is definitely worth giving a shot. However, what is more important to remember is how your users will perceive your website once things incorporated. If they are having a tough time dealing with things or are not able to comprehend things, then all your pain will go in vain. Make a right choice by being in users seat for a while when making a decision.

Google Material Design An Introduction

Google Material Design: An Introduction

Google Material Design An Introduction1

Recently, Google revealed a new design language for Android, Chrome OS and the Internet called Material Design. Actually, material design is a design language that is a combination of the successful classic design principles along with the latest innovations in technology. The aim of Material Design is to develop a system of design that allows users a unified experience across all of Google’s products on any platform.

Actually, a few years ago, Google products looked extremely annoying. Every single product that Google had made looked different on different platforms. However, in 2011, things began to change when Google started to think hard on this aspect and brought out a unification of the visual part of its ecosystem. This phase was called Project Kennedy.

Initially, Project Kennedy enhanced the web as well and a couple of application design. However, users still had to adjust and get used to the varied looks, controls, as well as layouts of the new interface, when they had to switch between the various devices as well as platforms. This led to the introduction of a new system and design approach called Material Design.

The new design language allows users to create a reliable steady and steady user experience across all devices such as desktops, smartphones, tablets, televisions, watches, etc. This design is actually an evolution of a precursor mobile OS called Holo. Actually, Android 5.0 brings Material design to Android along with an expanded UI tool kit, so that the new design patterns can be integrated easily into your apps.

This is a more flexible design language, which has been created for a global community of designers and developers. Thus, a more objective approach to the design adoption is possible With Material design.

The key principles of Material Design are based on the four basic principles:

  1. Tactile Surface :

Also called quantum paper, this interface consists of tangible layers, thus giving it the name quantum paper. Stacked and arranged at different heights, these layers cast shadows on top of each other. Thus, users are able to understand the anatomy of the interface better and the related principles of interaction.

  1. Print Design :

It can be assumed that the layers are pieces of digital paper. Thus, it becomes possible for digital ink to be displayed on these layers. This is akin to the approach used in traditional graphic design, such as posters, magazines, newspapers, CD covers, and so on.

  1. Meaningful Animations :

Animations are meaningful and do not appear or disappear at whim. Therefore, while using Material Design, users need to think how ‘realistic’ the animation of the layers can be and in terms of ‘digital ink’.

  1. Adaptive Design : –

This aspect is all about how three principles as well as concepts can be applied on devices with different screen sizes and with different resolutions.

According to Wikipedia, Material Design involves “more liberal use of grid-based layouts, responsive animations and transitions, padding, and depth effects such as lighting and shadows”. Further, their digital material can expand as well as reform intelligently. Also, designer Matias Duarteexplained that “unlike real paper, their digital material could expand and reform intelligently. While seams and shadows provide meaning about what users can touch, material has physical surfaces and edges.”

Google has announced Material Design on June 25, 2014 at the 2014 Google I/O conference. Currently, most of Google’s mobile applications for Android have applied the new design language. This includes most of Google’s products such as Gmail, YouTube, Google Drive, and other Google products including

  • Google Docs,
  • Sheets and Slides,
  • Google Maps,
  • Inbox
  • Google Play Branded Applications.

To a smaller extent, Google has applied material design to the Chrome Browser as well as Google Keep. Material design is incorporated in Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Inbox, as well. According to Wikipedia, Material design will be gradually extended to all of Google’s web as well as mobile products. Thus, material design is aimed to provide a consistent experience across all platforms as well as applications. Additionally, The APIs for third party developers also have been released, so that they can incorporate the design language as part of their applications.

Android M Introduced With Much Fanfare at Google IO 2015

Android M Introduced With Much Fanfare at Google I/O 2015


People familiar with the Google Android Operating System will probably know that Android M update has been recently launched at the Google I/O 2015 conference in San Francisco. Currently, The Android M preview for developers is available on a couple of devices such as the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 9 as well as the Nexus Player. Nevertheless, the final version is due for launch in Q3, 2015.

Android M Introduced With Much Fanfare at Google IO 2015-2

Back to the Basics

With this, Google (Sunder Pichai Senior VP Products) claims that it has “gone back to the basics” with this latest Android Version. Comparing Google M with the last major update Android L, Android Lollipopwas instrumental in bringing forth a wide range of visual and aesthetic changes, Google has worked on Android M to remove some of the short comings of Android M such as stability as well as usability issues.

A Wide Range of Improvements

Although these improvements are not as eye catching as those introduced for Google Android Lollipop, this version ‘M’, which is speculated will be labeled after a sweet as with the previous versions, includes a range of stability as well as usability improvements.

It can be said that Android M focuses more on a better user experience and improves the user experience a great deal, especially after a major redesign and “under-the-hood” work on Android Loillipop. Therefore, with Android M, there is a greater focus on giving Android a better polish and improving the user experience. According to Google, there are six different areas which have required improvement so that improved and state-of-the-art Android M can be put forth in front of a worldwide audience without any possible setbacks to its image as well as functionality.

  1. Advanced and Modified App Permissions

With Android M, app permissions have been revamped. Now, permissions will be requested the first time a user accesses a feature, instead of the point of installation. According to DaveBurke, VP Engineering (Android), users can accept or deny permissions as they feel fit. Further, they don’t have to agree to permissions that don’t make sense to them. Accordingly, users are given greater control over the information that apps can access, which takes Android M a step further compared to Android L. Permissions that have been granted earlier can be viewed at a later instance or date, thereby giving the user complete control over their Android device.

  1. Chrome Custom Tabs for Better Web Experience

Google has also introduced Chrome Custom Tabs that allows developers harness the complete capabilities of Chrome. At the same time, users can keep control of the look as well as feel of the experience. Chrome Custom Tabs actually allow apps to open a customized Chrome Window on top of the active app rather than launching the Chrome App Separately. This provides a faster as well as more intuitive user-experience as the user navigates between the apps and the web. With Chrome Custom Tabs Support, users can automatically sign in, save passwords, go for auto-fill, and enjoy multi-process security so that they can assist the integration of the app and the web experience.

  1. Standardized Finger Print Support

Finger print scanners that run on mobile phones that run Android M will receive standardized support from Google. This new functionality can be used to unlock phones, make purchases shopping in real-life or within play store apps. For this purpose, your device will need to support finger scanning hardware, but now that Google is expanding its full support, such hardware will appear on many more devices in the coming future.

  1. New Mobile Payments System

The new payment system that Google has introduced is called Android Pay, which is designed to make the checkout process simpler as well as faster. This process will help users to use their existing credit cards to pay for products in more than 700,000 stores in the USA. Currently, the new mobile payments system is compatible with any device that houses the NFC capabilities and running 4.4 KitKat or above. Additionally, the Android Pay platform is being supported by card merchants such as American Express, MasterCard, and Discover. Moreover, it is being supported by carriers such as Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T.

  1. Advanced Support for App Links

Until Recently, Android does not know whether to show a web link that a user selects from somewhere. However, with the advent of Android M, App links are being changed, so that Android has a greater awareness of which apps can open content directly, rather than presenting a dialog box to the users that asks users which application to use to open that particular link. Hence, if a user taps on a twitter link from within an email, the twitter app will open directly in Android M, instead of prompting users whether to use Twitter to view it.

  1. Better Power and charging Increased Standby Mode

With the Android M, a new function has been introduced, which is called Doze. This function improves the device standby time. With the help of motion detectors, it is now possible for Android to recognize which devices have been interacting for a while, so that it can reduce background processes. For example, the device can be stationary while the user is taking a nap or when it has been left aside for a while.

Additional Sops those are available with Android M

Besides all these advancements that are provided in Android M, the most interesting point discussed in the key speech of Google I/O was that Android M will be facilitated for Android Auto Backup and Restore for Apps, for use in conjunction with Google Drive, so that the app data and settings can be automatically backed up for files with a file size of 25 MB or less. Additionally, there is a new App Drawer, which scrolls vertically rather than horizontally. Plus, it is held against a white background. Users can also see four of their recently used apps across the top of their menu, while the letters of the alphabet are visible on the left-hand side.

Android M also comes with a RAM manager, with provides users with more accurate as well as understandable information about how much of maximum as well as average RAM the installed apps use. With this information, the users will find it easy to follow which apps occupy more RAM, and decide for themselves which apps need to be removed to increase the performance of their devices as well as battery life. With Android M, Google has introduced Adoptable Storage Devices, which is its new storage feature. This behaves like an external storage source, and can be formatted like an internal storage space. Hence, app as well as personal data can be freely moved between the internal storage of a devices as well as its adopted source of storage.

Finally, there is a dark theme option that transforms the background of the menu to a dark grey color instead of a regular pale shade. Also Google Now comes in its improved avatar, with a faster and leader Chrome, and Google introduces its Google Photos Service for the first time on Android M. Previously it was a part of Google+, but it is now a standalone version that provides as video as well as sharing service. It provides free storage for up to 16 P photos as well as 1080p video.


With Android M now on the scene, it remains to be seen how other competitors will react to this development. For now, we will have to be patient and see what the ‘M’ in Android M stands for. Till then, it’s time for the developers to comprehend this new operating system and get the hang of it for better and more comprehensive android development.
