Google's New Cardboard Hands-On: A Little Bigger, A Little Better

Can't the manufacturers of all Android phones package this in an already made box with each new phone? That would be really cool and probably won't add much to the cost of the phone. Imagine that the box the phone comes in is actually very useful...

Dopo i video con Cristina Cattaneo (http://on.fb.me/1R3yj2Z), Kengiro Azuma (http://on.fb.me/1KjW6dV), Costantino Bongiorno di WeMake (http://on.fb.me/1PWEEe0) e Marco De Rossi (http://on.fb.me/1HjVb7b), proseguono gli incontri per scoprire le diverse anime della Milano contemporanea. Oggi siamo in via Piero della Francesca, all'interno della Ca’ Longa, un antico cascinale dell’800. Qui ha trovato casa Fridabike, un nuovo negozio-laboratorio dove Antonella Pesenti produce delle bici modello cargo. La prima bici Antonella l'aveva creata per portare in giro i suoi bambini. Poi è diventato un lavoro, ora è un laboratorio e una visione della città. After giving birth to her two kids she gave up riding a bike for transportation. But then Antonella Pesenti decided to create her own special cargo-bike to move around the city of Milan with her kids. Other mothers saw it and wanted one too, so Antonella founded Fridabike. Let's meet Antonella in this new video from the "Milano è" series. Check the previous videos with scientist Cristina Cattaneo (http://on.fb.me/1R3yj2Z), artist Kengiro Azuma (http://on.fb.me/1KjW6dV), Costantino Bongiorno from WeMake fablab (http://on.fb.me/1PWEEe0) and startupper Marco De Rossi (http://on.fb.me/1HjVb7b).
