Top 10 Google Inventions That Change Your Life
Google is launching a campaign to help fight Ebola after Facebook providing donation services, but the technology giant likes to work on inventions that no one else in the world is taking on. Here are a few of their revolutionary ideas, and some of them are well on their way to fruition.
10. Driverless cars
The cars have already been able to master driving on American freeways, but Google has since announced that its test cars can handle city streets with pedestrians also.
9. Google Glass
Google Glass is bringing humans closer to technology than ever before. This year, Virgin Atlantic began testing the use of Glass as a means of checking in passengers at the airport.
8. Google Lens
Google is also working on a pair of smart contact lenses. The idea here is to help diabetics track their glucose levels.
7. Home Automation
Google has plans to make a multitude of home items controllable with a smartphone. From light bulbs to stereos to appliances, everything would now be remotely access from the palm of users' hands.
Google X's researchers looked hard and long at the potential of making a skateboard that hovers above the ground.
Google is working on a slew of smart wearable technology. Google has announced its plans to bring Android to smartwatches through a new project called Android Wear.
4. Google Fiber
Google Fiber aims to provide Gigabit Internet speeds. This ultra-high speed Internet service will allow us to consume information at a never before seen rate.
3. Test Tube Food
Right now, Google-funded researchers are hard at work trying to grow tasty hamburgers from stem cells. That means we are getting closed to solving the world's food crisis.
2. Project Loon
Project Loon is Google's attempt to bring Internet access to the entire world. The goal is to use hot-air balloons to provide Internet access to the two-thirds of the world living without it.
1. Space Elevator
Of all the Google X projects, there is perhaps none more ambitious than an elevator to space.
