Google's creating spatial audio for Cardboard
Google’s Cardboard division, which oversees improvement of the VR platform and its related software program, introduced on Wednesday that it’s updating the platform’s SDK to permit builders to combine “spatial audio” into their apps. Spatial audio — aka 3D or binaural audio — is designed to shift between channels relying on the consumer’s head place to create extra immersive audio. Cardboard’s new SDK won’t solely permit devs to find out the relative place of sounds but in addition emulate their materials and measurement — all whereas doing so on a smartphone’s CPU.
