Interview: Elite Recognized Developer Chainfire – XDA TV

You may remember that we were on-site for the Samsung Galaxy S III unveiling at Unpacked 2012 in London last week. We then went hands-on with the Samsung Galaxy S III and showed you its cool gestures, blazing fast performance, and USB host capabilities. Not content with simply calling it a night, what then are two self-proclaimed Android nerds to do at 3 AM after the event? Interviews, of course!

Join us in today’s episode of XDA Developer TV, where I had the honor and pleasure of interviewing XDA Elite Recognized Developer Chainfire in an extremely late night interview session. We start off by “unboxing” the “Samsung Galaxy S III.” We then talk about the Samsung Galaxy S III, including what we like and what we don’t like. Then, Chainfire talks about his personal life, hobbies, development history, favorite projects, and those that have made him want to demolish his computer. For those living under a rock, Chainfire is responsible for WMWiFiRouter, CF-Root, CF-Bench, Chaifire 3D, DSLR Controller, and a plethora of other development work. You can find a selection of his development work on the XDA Portal and of course in Chainfire’s signature on the XDA Forums.

In case you haven’t already started watching, this is an interview you do not want to miss. Grab some popcorn, hit play, and prepare to be amazed.

This interview, as well as many other interesting videos, can be found on the XDA-Developers YouTube Channel.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
