Upcoming Android feature reportedly lets nearby devices automatically interact

Google is said to be working on a new Android feature that allows phones and tablets to automatically connect with devices and places very close around them, according to Android Police.

Writing in a paper published in the journal PLOS ONE earlier this week, the scientists describe the process as ‘beaming’ — human participants are given a VR headset which allows them to control a virtual avatar, shown above, while the movements of a rat in a separate enclosure are mapped on to a second avatar. A robot in the rat’s enclosure represents the human, its movements scaled down to fit the smaller space.

During the experiment, the rats and humans were located more than seven miles apart, at different locations near the University of…
