Google Glass & Google Cardboard

GoogleGlassWe are hosting a Heritage & Play session today at York to test out & brainstorm about the possibilities of both Google Glass and Google Cardboard for heritage and archaeological practice. For those who have already used these tools and who would be keen to share your experiences, I’m making available our brainstorming document to you at this link. Similarly, if you haven’t used them, but have constructive ideas to share about their potential applications, do feel free to contribute your views. If you add your voice to the document, I’d be very grateful if you’d acknowledge your name, avoid deleting other people’s notes and otherwise engage respectfully with the document. And if you’re in York, please join us!

More details on the event are below:

The Heritage & Play group returns for a new academic year of fun, experimentation and socialising Wednesdays at lunchtime. The Autumn term launches with a session of demo-ing Google Glass and Google Cardboard & then brainstorming about their possibilities for heritage studies & archaeology.

Ever wanted to test out these new technologies? Now is your chance! All are welcome.

Heritage & Play: Google Glass & Google Cardboard

22 October, 2014

13:00 – 14:00

Room: K/159

The Heritage & Play group is an informal meeting organized by Colleen Morgan, Sara Perry and Gareth Beale to creatively experiment with cultural heritage and expression. Each meeting is loosely structured around a topic, theory, or making session, but focuses on Play as a productive means to engage with heritage in new ways.

This week’s topic: Google Glass & Google Cardboard Demo & Brainstorming Session: How might we apply these tools to archaeology? 

During this week’s Heritage & Play, we will demo Google Glass, & build and demo Google Cardboard, and then engage in an extended, collaborative digital brainstorming session about their potential applications to archaeological andheritage practice. We’ll use Google Draw & Google Docs to facilitate the brainstorming, accessible via this link.

Bring your curiosity, your tablet, laptop or smartphone (if you have one – if not, just bring yourself), & your lunch.
