Google - The Little Bot that Could
Gone are the days when Google was only a search engine that made sense of the internet. Nowadays Google has its nose in everything from mobile phones to tablets, social media and now robots. Yes you heard that right. Robots. Brings a whole new meaning to the term Googlebot don’t it.
So let the speculating begin. The New York Times said:
If Amazon can imagine delivering books by drones, is it too much to think that Google might be planning to one day have one of the robots hop off an automated Google Car and race to your doorstep to deliver a package?
It’s a brave new world. If it can walk, talk or fly a robot can probably do it. Terminator Skynet might not be that far off after all. That’s great news for Arnold Swartzenegger (I hear he is looking for work to keep his ex in the luxury she is accustomed to.) But what about the rest of us.
Do you still buy into Google’s ‘do no evil‘ mantra? I mean, can you imagine Google’s clever algorithm inside the brains of a robot wearing Google Glasses. Think about it.
And you thought Scoble is scary.
I have my suspicions but what do you think Google is up to?
