Earlier this week, Google’s developer mascot teased a “special surprise” on I / O on Twitter. The company announced this morning that it will be running a Google I / O Photo Booth that will feature virtual selfies with Dash, Sparky, Dino and Android can be included.
Dash (Flutter), Sparky (Firebase), Dino (Chrome) and Android (Jetpack variant) participated in a fun video Tuesday of them coming together after an I / O spotlight. They gathered in front of a “top secret” box when Google teased, “To be continued …” Our personal guess was that there would be a new developer mascot.
On the Friday before the developer conference, the video continued with the four characters activating a [Google Play] – ha! – Console, complete with the T-Rex who has a hard time pushing his button before deciding to use his tail.
It turned out that the surprise is a Google I / O Photo Booth that allows you to take an “epic selfie” with all of the mascots. This will likely come in the form of a mobile app or website, with Google sharing how it’s done with Flutter and Firebase. It’s going to be available next week and is a replacement for not being able to snap a photo in front of the huge sign at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View.
In the meantime, Google also announced that Olympic champion Simone Biles will have a special guest appearance at the keynote. An enclosed clip shows how she takes photos with a Pixel phone today.
