Here Are Google's 10 Most Interesting Works In Progress!

Global search giant, Google has been silently working on becoming far more than just a search and advertising company. So much so that in the coming years Google might be known for projects that normally don't go with its portfolio. These projects could well in time change substantially our lives and our mindsets towards it. Here are 10 of the most awe inspiring projects the company has up its sleeves:

Google, Projects, Robotics, DeepMind, Taxi Services, Driverless Cars, Lunar X Prize, Google Fiber, Smart Contact Lens

1. Google Invests Heavily in Robots

-In just the past year, Google has made nearly 10 robotics-related acquisitions (including DeepMind) and has invested heavily in places like Japan known for rapidly growing robotics.

2. Google Experimenting With Taxi Services

-Google recently acquired a patent on a technology that would allow consumers to get free taxi rides. Through the same, Google might bring its digital-advertising strategy to the real world!

3. Google Joins Automakers in Developing Driverless Cars

-Google's interest in developing a 'driverless' car is not new. However, it's still years from actually getting on the road in large numbers and gaining regulatory approval.

4. Google Aims for the Moon

-Google's Lunar X Prize rewards companies, organisations, groups, institutions and others interested in going to the moon for the progress they make toward getting there. Up for grabs is $40 million in prizes.

5. Google Fiber Growing Slowly

-Google Fiber is expanding each day (offering extremely fast Internet speeds). It's up and running in Kansas City.

6. Project Loon Floats Trial Balloons

-Google will float balloons over designated areas (preferably areas where Internet is not avaialble) and provide an Internet signal to those living there.

7. Smart Contact Lens Do More Than Sharpen Vision

-The contact lens will be worn on a person's eye and will measure glucose levels every second: particularly helpful in case of diabetes.

8. Calico Tackling Health, Wellness Issues

-Google has formed a subsidiary, known as Calico, that will tackle health and well-being.

9. Google Expands Renewable Wind Energy Resources

-Google relies heavily on wind farms to power its data centers.

10. Google X Envisions Space Elevators

-Last year, Google X announced that it was looking into developing a space elevator to lift people and payloads into orbit.
