Can’t Wait For Google I/O Registration? Input/Output Will Keep You Busy, Could Get You a Trip to the Event

Back when Google I/O 2012 was first announced, there was mention that developers and coders would have an easier route to getting in to the event than everyone else. Input/Output seems to be what they were hinting at. They are encouraging you to “dust off your protractor , and architect a machine only you could have dreamt of. Join developers tackling our latest Chrome Experiment for a chance to have your machine featured at Google I/O.”

It would be a little unfair to have your device featured and the creator not be there for the unveiling. In the meantime, Input/Output offers a fun little web-based machine builder where you have to get the ball from one side of the screen to the other without touching the sides. It’s extremely addictive and fun and why not try if you can get the chance for a ticket to I/O this year?

    That image would be better if the design actually worked it getting the ball to the other side

  • Royal2000H

    I see that Google says they might feature the machine, but where do they say you can get a free ticket?

    They give you different balls to play with as you advance. Wait.. nah I’ll keep it.

    Am I allowed to attend I/O as just a big Google/Android fan? I’m not a developer but it is all very fascinating to me, and I’d love to attend the keynotes and conferences. Is it frowned upon to go without being some big wig?

    • Anybody can go 🙂

        Are you and Kellex going?

        • Noyfb

          Kellex needs to go and post the video to droid life’s youtube account. Would love to see what goes on there. Sounds like a slice of nerd paradise

    I can’t anything to enter the initial re-director… the ball hits the grey cup and flies right thru it, no matter the range, angle or velocity.  Any tips?

  • Droidzilla

    Now I’m going to get nothing done at work.

  • edmicman

    Anyone else have problems where the ball will fly out at a greater speed halfway through building something?  I’ll have things all set up an testing great and then all of a sudden it overshoots the initial piece every time!

  • Too sick! can’t wait! 😀
