For the needs of the dwell demo, the Venture Astra staff at I/O developed a collection of video games the place a digicam was pointed down on a desk able to obtain enter for Gemini 1.5 to course of. The alliteration train proven within the video beneath was a type of video games: a collection of objects have been positioned on that desk, and Gemini was requested to give you some examples of alliteration utilizing the names and qualities of mentioned objects.
