Google Project: Building Real Robots?

When the Android OS founder, Andy Rubin, stepped away from the famous mobile operating system he helped create, some rumors suggested that he would pursue his lifelong love of creating real robots instead from then.

Now, The New York Times reports that those rumors were true indeed: the Google Inc. has recently purchased seven different robot companies for any of their secretive new robotics initiative and they have placed Rubin at its head. The story has apparently come from Andy Rubin himself, who has recently granted the Times an exclusive interview but would not provide many details about the Google Inc.'s plans.

Apparently, the robot group is kept distinct from the Google X lab, which has nowadays become synonymous with the company's innovative and crazier hardware projects, such as their self-driving cars and the balloon-powered internet projects. However, Andy Rubin has said that their new division which could even be spun off as a whole separate company is still pursuing a "moonshot" of that sort. Currently, Mr. Rubin is hiring some roboticists for the project, which the Times have reported will maintain their offices in both Palo Alto and in Japan.

According to some of the "several people with some specific knowledge” about the project, these robots will most likely be used in any manufacturing project rather than sold to the consumers, and they might also specifically be used in the electronics assembly— which might fit well with the technology industry's recent push for the Made in the USA products.
