Google Corp. recently announced the release of an upcoming Google Robot Army. The search engine giant has bought and acquired 12 robotics companies in the past two months. Google can officially add “robotics” to its brand’s name. Google is moving towards creating and building robotics-based technologies for the future as part of the Google X division. The Google X division is a top secret agency where Google has bought the robotics company DeepMind Technologies. DeepMind is working on projects like the hypothetical Googlebot to the future Google flagship engine.
Google is everywhere and only expanding more. The smart investment of purchasing multiple robotics companies is going to strength the future of Google, solidifying that the next step is robots. Some of the robotics companies now owned by Google are: Schaft Inc, Industrial Perception Inc, Redwood Robotics, Meka Robotics, Holomini and DeepMind Techlogies.
Google is moving away from the web and mobile markets to build a larger than life Google Robot Army—that will inevitably be the macro-force of the future.
