This online mogul – Google – is one of the most forward-thinking companies of all time. At least in terms of success. While their ideas might not be the most outrageous, they are the most widespread and the most well received. Even their “failures” have received praise for ingenuity and creativity. Just slap the word “Google” on it, and they’re likely to sell anything – even if it’s only just a few copies.
So what is the company been up to in recent times?
The interesting and alluring thing about Google is that we really never know exactly what they’re thinking. They might release a few bits of info (even leaking them on purpose), but until the product actually comes out, we aren’t sure what’s going down behind the curtain. Sometimes, we still don’t know. Which is why we look to current news sources and the rumor mill to learn anything that might be of value to understanding Google’s next big move.
Lately, they’ve made no secret about their advancements in Google Glass, even opting for users to test the product personally. They’re also not shy about their algorithm changes, which happen on an ongoing stature. (Even if we never see the actual algorithm for ourselves.) Meanwhile, they’ve also continued to expand the reach of Google Fiber, bringing faster Internet to more customers by the week. Also on the docket are ultra tech-y phones, driver-less cars, synched electronics, and more.
But what about the “more”? The stuff Google doesn’t want us to know about? In all likelihood, there’s probably an underground tavern full of secret projects. Where armed guards stand at the door but aren’t really sure what they’re protecting. However, there’s also a list of in-between ventures – the ones that haven’t yet been released, but have still given us some insider info.
According to the web, they’re working on a number of futuristic inventions, such as office drone robots that can perform daily tasks, as well as complicated ones. Essentially, it’s a way to replace the intern and do away with office angst. Rumor has it there’s an entire warehouse ran by these bots … wherever that may be. Also on their supposed docket: elevators that take you to space. With scientific lifts, riders would be launched past the earth and into “a counterweight in orbit” in order to perform science experiments, data collection, and more.
But perhaps the most controversial ventures is that of clean energy. By creating a worldwide power source that doesn’t pollute the planet, the company can work to reduce pollution without doing away with tech. And if anyone can take on the oil tycoons, it’s definitely Google.
There’s no denying that Google has plenty of irons in the fire. And while we might not always know which irons or where, we can take comfort in their ability to create tech-ready innovations that will work to benefit our daily lives. It’s simply a matter of time until each advancement is announced, and placed into consumers’ hands.
