Google I/O 2014: What to Expect

With the Google I/O 2014 approaching fast there are some mighty products and services in the pipeline. The target audience has great expectations from the big G.

Google is known for its extremely innovative methodology and creative chaos. The moon-shot it is famous for may have by now evolved into the Mars-shot since lunar missions are so old hat. And such seemingly crazy experiments as the driverless car and balloons that provide Internet services in remote areas may make it a bit of an oddball organization, yet Google is sincere in its cutting edge cross-pollination and unity-in-diversity.

Just like the wild and maddening freedom of the Internet where anything goes, Google’s microcosm allows everything to influence everything else. A few of the inventions and discoveries that Google has come up prior to the I/O function are listed below in all their marvelous glittery glory:

Such objects of desire as a smartwatch, a wrist band and a pair of Google Glass devices all have their place in the world of today. When someone is exercising or wants to keep in touch with what is going on elsewhere via his computer watch it is precisely these wearables that come in handy. They are basically linked to the Android system and have 64 bit Snapdragon microprocessors in them.

Smart Phone Territory

Google is pushing the envelope as far as smart phones are concerned. Such outdated companies as BlackBerry offer no competition. And even such big ones as Apple have their products going into a decline. So Google wants to cash in on this unique opportunity. The big daddy of search engines has even bought a company named “Divide” in its irrepressible quest to beat its rivals in this regard.

Further Android Devices

An Android Silver device lies in the pipeline while Nexus TV too acts like a television-cum-gaming console. Android Television is to replace the once-upon-a-time Google TV which unfortunately proved to be a failure. A host of features will appear on Android TV and it is all for you alone. Hulu, Netflix, Pandora and Vevo are a few of the names which have jumped on the bandwagon. As for the games on the platform, they include Plants vs. Zombies, Triple Town and Asphalt 8.

Vehicles without Passengers

These might sound like something out of a science fiction film. And people may also feel a certain degree of trepidation in using them. However, the technicians in Google’s labs have done their homework. After the prototypes of self driving vehicles were made, the cars are finally to be released on the streets in several cities. The ten thousand sensors they sport prove handy in stabilizing their journey to and from one place to another.

Giant Robots

The field of Artificial Intelligence may have reached a juncture where at least on the outside the differences between life and non-life can be erased (at least partially). With over half a dozen robotic firms under its belt, Google’s star is on the rise. Its Alpha Dog robot looks like a large animal advancing on its path.

And Tons of other Stuff

Google plans to bring the entire world’s population online. And its play fitness program is extra fun and a lively way of allowing interactivity to flourish and burgeon. Even a Chrome Operating System Tablet exists in embryonic form for showcasing at the I/O slated to occur soon. There are other tablets that sell at reasonable rates and they too are about to come out of the Google closet (so to say). Then Google will allow your smart phone to unlock all you devices. This is a clever trick that will do away with passwords and their security-related hassles.

A Few Last Minute Changes

Besides all this, Google is up to other tinkering ways too. It has purchased Nest, which is a cybernetic home company. By heating and cooling homes through intelligent thermostats, Nest is the next big thing on the horizon. And Google also appears to have buried the hatchet with its archrival Samsung. The company is moving at a feverish pitch into the unforeseen and unknown future. It will create the world anew in its shape by introducing the true taste of technology to an audience of tech-savvy youngsters and their seniors. Two cheers for the big G!
