Developer support is essential for the survival of a software platform in this day and age, and Google wants you to know that it has plenty of developer support for its wearable platform. During the keynote address at Google I/O 2015 today the company revealed that so far developers have created more than 4,000 apps for Android Wear. It was also revealed that Uber is launching an app for this platform, thus enabling Android Wear smartwatches to call you a car.
Many companies are working on virtual reality headsets and while some of them might cost fortunes, there are some that are cheap enough to be in the range of the masses. Google has a completely different approach to virtual reality. Last year it launched Cardboard, a virtual reality viewer and this year at I/O 2015 it has unveiled a new version of Google Cardboard that also has support for the iPhone.
