Daily am thinking about, what topic we can write today? Suddenly i decided to write about the tech giant "Google". "Google in Ten Years" the topic itself says about the content.
Google Inc is an American Multinational company specialized in internet related services and products like Cloud computing, software and online advertising technologies. Larry page and Sergey Brin who met at Stanford University in 1995, founded this excellent search engine in the year 1998.
In 1996, they founded a search engine named “BackRub” which used links to determine the importance of each web page. Later in 1998, Page and Brin set up their first data center at page’s dorm. Then decided to start up a company and started to look for the investors who could encourage them. Andy Bechtolsheim, one of the founders of Sun Micro-systems, invested the first amount of $100,000 in the company after watching the demo of their search technology. This amount was raised over $1 Million by both Larry and Brin.
Thus, the Company Google Inc was established on the same year 1998 in a friend’s garage,California. Page and Brin hired their first employee, Craig silvertein, who later became the Google’s Director of Technology.
Following the History of Google, let’s see few of the future innovations of Google that are going to change the world.The company spends lot of its time and money on newest innovations from space elevators to robots and thus few among them follows below:
Google’s Home Automation:
Google used its I/O interface to develop a software framework for Android users called Android@home that allows the programmer to interact with the various connected applications such as light bulbs, thermostats, washing machines and more.
Android@Home uses an open wireless protocol, allowing the OS to connect with any devices that are powered with electricity. At present, Google has previewed a new technology called Project Tungsten that combines the Music Beta service of Google with tablets and smartphones to control specific music systems at home.
Google is trying to develop a full-fledged Robot which may perform all types of mundane tasks around your home or office right from preparing and serving coffees, cleaning, and other tasks to make humans more comfortable while working remotely. For this, Google has initiated with a secret division of lab called Google X, which has its office located nearby the Corporate’s Headquarters Googleplex in Mountain View, California. This is the area where most of the future innovations are being developed and one among them is Robots.
It is an amazing lab for future, where your refrigerator can connect to the internet and order for its own groceries when they run low. Also, your dinner plate can post to your favorite social media what you are eating at that moment and so on.
Google’s Project Loon is a new venture that tackles both the rural and urban areas who are in dire need of internet access. This is achieved by connecting the large networks through air balloons which are straddled on the Earth’s Stratosphere. This project’s prototype is already been a success which was released in June 2013 on the outskirts of New Zealand travelling 20Km all the way around.
This balloon would be guided by the capable software algorithms, and the natural wind may bounce the signals to the antennas at the consumer’s homes. This balloon is designed with polyethylene plastic capable of withstanding high pressure altitudes and powered by solar panels.
Single balloon can cover an area of 40 Km delivering internet speeds comparable to 3G networks.
This is a wearable computing project which is more or less similar to your mobile phone. It is similar to your reading glass in shape and size, whereas has features which is far more imaginable. It comes with adjustable notepads and frame to fit all faces. It also has additional features that your mobile phone has, like 5MP camera, WI-FI, Bluetooth etc. It can record videos and take pictures and post to it to your favorite social networking sites.
Storage capacity is total of 16 GB in which 12 GB of usable memory has been synced with Google Cloud storage.
At present, it is made available only to few lucky developers who are analyzing it. Currently only 2000 glass are available in the world and sold at a rate of $1500 on an initial basis.
In the beginning of 2014, it has been planned to be released worldwide and the price tag will be set low according to its demand.
Can see how it works in the following site:

It is one of most ambitious project which allows car to be operated without the driver. This is really amazing thing which has stunned many people around the world. This type of driver-less cars will be very useful for blind people who can operate the car just through the buttons provided in the cars, says Google.
Despite the secretive lab, and mysterious flair, you have to definitely accept that Google is accomplishing their share of social responsibilities diligently and swiftly.
