Google’s Android Founder Andy Rubin is Working on Robots with Seven Acquisitions

Google is not one to back away from the oncoming competition. Amazon’s Jeff Bezos spoke recently about employing drones to deliver packages to customers sometime in the future. The execs at Google decided to avail the services of Andy Rubin, the maker of the Android platform, who will now concentrate on robotics and artificial intelligence. 

Google literally wants to have robots hand the goods at the doorstep of the clientele. While Google has always gone for the moon shot, this is a much more realistic vision than Amazon’s plans. In its efforts to make a radical shift towards robotics, it has bought seven firms associated with the field. And while Google is taciturn regarding its strategies, it is seriously considering the transformation towards computerized humanoids. 

For now at least, the robotics venture will be restricted to manufacturing instead of being geared towards consumer service. One fine day in the future, packaged delivery via robots may be a reality. It is just a matter of time. The next decade may be all we have to wait for such a scenario to materialize. The middle aged Rubin has a lot of experience in robotics. 

Andy Rubin wants to tinker with systems that have built in feedback. An example of such products of cybernetics is a windshield wiper that operates only when it rains. Technology has come of age and is about to undergo an even bigger revolution. As for Google, it is 100% behind Andy and has him on its payroll. Google has always taken giant steps and this is not the only time it has reached for the stars.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
