26 May 2016 0

Google announced the winners of the Android Experiments I/O Challenge yesterday. The challenge was conducted for developers to come up with inventions and ideas that prove useful on Android. Google has announced the three grand prize winners.

The grand prize winner was Al Bencomo, for developing the autonomous Android vehicle that interacts when it encounters objects. He creatively made use of the camera and IR sensors on the Android phone to navigate the object and move accordingly.

The second grand prize winner was Mike Roelens, who created Hungermoji — a game that takes place completely within the notification shade, the game is played by swiping the emojis that appears in the notification area.

Hatem Shahabri and Yury Sachnovskiy secured the third grand prize for creating a way to turn your phone into a 3D controller. Using this API, you can create different applications that use your phone's orientation to position a 3D model or object on another screen like playing games, viewing objects at different angles etc.
