In Pictures: Google I/O Android Sandbox - Coolest sights and gadgets from the show floor

The Android Developer Sandbox is the place to be if you want to see the hottest Android-based projects. Here's what we liked.

Recon Instruments and Active Network Ski Mask

Android-powered ski goggles? Why not! The Recon Instruments ski goggles look and feel like any other ski goggles on the market, except that they’ll show you navigational information, a weather report, ski lift availability and personal statistics. The goggles use the Active Network’s RTP LivePass and RTP REALX platforms to bring this information to tech-savvy skiers.

Recon said that it plans to add motorcycle goggles as well as “endurance goggles” for runners and bikers. Note that these ski goggles don’t have anything to do with Google Glass--that’s an entirely separate product.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
