Oct. 4, 2013 12:49 PM
It is well-know that Google is a powerful company that deals not only with search. Today the company is a world leader in the development of gadgets, internet services and other development. Also Google has a secret Google X team which works on development of the most non-standart projects, and among which there are airships that distribute wireless Internet and the development of next-generation drugs, but this is just the thing we are aware of. So, let summarize the ideas that the Internet giant wants to bring to life .
Game console based on Android
Now Google is on development of the gaming console, which is designed to be a "killer" of Apple TV: game console from Google will allow you to run any Android-based games directly on your home TV.
Driverless Car Program
Today the company is in talks with the US authorities to get a permission to test the self-driving cars on public roads, but only up to now California and Nevada have signed this agreement.
So, the tests are on, but it is still unclear when such cars will enter the real car market.
Another Google development in the field of health is done by a subsidiary company - iPierian, creating the technology of "cellular reprogramming", which will fight diseases by modifying body cells.
However, do not wait for Google's quick realization of this idea - the development of "space elevator" faces many technical challenges.
Airships with Wireless Internet
Eco-friendly sources of energy
The best-known development of Makani Power is wind turbines, working at an altitude of almost 300 m to 650 m and allowing to generate electricity out of air.
