Google Cardboard Marriage Proposal
Virtual reality marriage proposal is a brilliant idea; it shows that virtual reality can be apply in every aspect of our daily life creatively. Mike Rios and Maggie are both multimedia graphic designers, who had been dating for 5 years.
5 years ago, Mike asked Maggie if she would married him as a joke in a shopping center park, and 5 years ( is 5 years the magic number for proposal? ) later he wants to recreate that scene with the help of Maggie and Mike’s family and friends at the same spot! The difference is that this time is for real!
Mike had prepared a surprise goodie box with a set of Google Cardboard, a smartphone and a pair of earphone for the Google Cardboard powered virtual reality marriage proposal!
What makes this virtual reality proposal so cute is that, the family and friends had spent days to practice and polish their wonderful dance routine just to surprise Maggie!
On the big day, March 8, 2015, you can tell that Mike is a little nervous, but Big Mike came well prepared! Mike took Maggie to the same spot he once made the lighthearted joke, and show her the surprise box with golden ribbons ( awww… how cute! )
Mike had Maggie put on the Google Cardboard headset, and had Maggie’s father guided her down the street as Maggie was fully immersed in the virtual world that Mike had created. On the right is Maggie's view in Google Cardboard's virtual world!
The virtual world is filled with pre-made graphics of Maggie and Mike’s family and friends holding signs with guided words to help Mike pop the big question. And of course, Maggie was smart enough to pick the hint!
The cutest part in this virtual reality marriage proposal came right after Maggie took off the Google Cardboard, she was surrounded by family and friends. She can see that big smile on her face! A mariachi band started jamming and family and friends performed the adorable dance routine!
Mike got down to his knee and busted out the ring at the perfect timing, and Maggie said YES! You just can’t go run with proposal this cute!
The virtual reality marriage proposal is a perfect example of how we can apply virtual and augmented reality. Virtual reality is going to change our lives positively, and for the better!
