Googling along with the Winter Olympics

Techstination feature for Monday, February 19, 2018

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     Using tech to add to your Olympics viewing experience.     If you’re a fan of virtual reality…and 360 degree video….NBC Sports has apps for iOS and Android that will let you stream VR content from the Winter games.   For the live content, you will have to authenticate your subscription with a cable, satellite or digital operator.   Inexpensive VR goggles…like Google Cardboard will do the trick…but the experience is even better with higher end hardware.   And Google can help…besides assisting with all of those Olympic related searches.   Google’s LaToya Drake …

“Our friends over at Google Earth, with Google Earth Voyager actually created some visuals that let you see what’s happening through the athletes’ eyes.  So you can see them going downhill skiing, you can feel like you’re there.”

From the safety and warmth of your recliner.
