GATHER | PAPER PLANES
Android wanted to create a series of digital experiences based on their tagline "Be together. Not the same", to flex various pieces of hardware (microphone, accelerometer, etc.) As people connect through music Team Rolling Stone joined in the creation of an app, called Gather, which is a fun and interactive way to connect the global Android community and harness their collective power. One such experience/ experiment was Paper Planes, where festival goers could fold their own digital paper plane and use their phone to throw it to festival goers on the other side of the world. People could see all the planes being thrown on a big second screen displayed on the main stage. It became an interactive way for people to engage with the capabilities of the operating system and inspire developers to create their own.
