Google has blossomed into one of the most diverse companies in America. It started out as a simple search engine and has grown over the years into multiple fields. Some examples of Google’s growth include the Android operating system and the Google map feature that is so helpful when you are lost.
Google will stop at nothing to make the world a better place. One of the coolest features of working for Google is that they encourage all their employees to work on their own projects as well as Google-related projects. This increases the creative flow in a company and allows for projects that were merely ideas to get under way.
Through their research and development program, Google has come up with some interesting projects. Many of these future projects will change the way we live. Here are some of the ways Google is planning on changing the world.
Google is planning to change the way we socialize and interact with the environment around us. Literally. Google Glass is going to change the way we see the world. It will allow us to connect through social networks, get information faster, and learn new things with a simple request. We will have a world of information directly in our eyesight.
Google Home Automation
Who doesn’t like walking into their home and having all the necessary lights turn on, your favorite tunes playing from your sound system, and your TV turning on to your favorite channel? Well Google’s latest project called Android @ Home builds an integrated home system that connects all your major appliances. The goal of this system is to make your home experience feel more like home and less like a chore. It will remind you when you need to buy more milk or when you need to change your light bulbs.
Google X Robot
Google X is a project that brings Google developers together in order to build human serving robots. The goal of this project is to build robots that can become functioning members of people’s households. These robots are being tested with the hopes of doing mundane tasks both in the home or in the office. These robots will give humans more flexibility to work on higher level tasks. The overall goal of these robots is to make humans more productive.
Google Clean Energy
One of the biggest problems for our generation will be dealing with pollution and its effects on the environment. Well, Google has a whole not for profit sector dedicated to these issues. This sector has experimented with many coal alternatives with the goal of finding cheaper and environmentally friendly coal alternatives. This project will be pivotal to the energy sustainability of the world as a whole.
Google has an investment portfolio that leaves no stone unturned. One of its premier projects is the iPierian project, which was established to help fight diseases and bring about better health to the world. iPierian uses cellular programming to create drugs that help fight disease. These drugs are different from your normal prescriptions as they set out to fight diseases by modifying them into something that the body can use.
Like Virgin Atlantic, Google is interested in commercial space toys. They have set to create a space elevator that will allow for easy access to space from earth. The goal of this elevator is to allow for easy access to space for patrons who are interested in scientific experimentation and other ventures.
Tired of driving? Well Google has made it their duty to make a driverless car. Just imagine the impact this will have on our commute. We will never have to worry about directions or stressing whether or not we are going the right way. Road trips will be less of a headache and we will get to spend more time with our family and friends instead of driving and watching the road. Google Car will reduce the amount accidents and even allow for better travel as there will be fewer mistakes due to human error.
Google Brain Chips
Is memory loss a problem for you? Well, no worries, Google is on it. They have been working on developing a brain chip that will allow you to go back into your memory and remember things you thought you forgot. Also this brain chip will help handicapped people with simple tasks like moving their wheelchairs and other things that are difficult. This brain chip is a far ways off, as the technology to implant a functioning chip into the brain still doesn’t exist, but who knows what can happen behind the closed doors of Google?
Google has set out to help predict the future using super computers. In their Recorded Future venture, Google has set out to comb the universe of available information with the idea of using this information to predict the future. One may ask how Google plans on using information that already happened to predict the future? Well, it’s simple. Google plans on using all the information available at hand and place it in a calculation that will allow for us to formulate clues on what is going to happen.
What better way to hire smart and intelligent workers in a competitive environment than by offering your employees extended life? Engineers at Google are working together to help humans reach the singularity point, which will literally make us immortal. This project will require the most intricate computer system to date. Just because it may seem impossible doesn’t mean Google doesn’t want to try it, they have engineers already attempting to build this incredible computer.
