Google X Leader on Wearable Computing: It’s Coming
Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) X is Google’s notoriously secret hardware innovation facility located about a half mile from the company’s headquarters in Mountain View, California. Overseen by Sergey Brin, one of the tech giant’s co-founders, the lab’s workers are sworn to secrecy as they work on the development of future technologies such as wearable computers and driverless cars.
Though the group has kept frustratingly quiet about what the future for Google holds, its leader, Mary Lou Jepsen, left the lab compound last week and appeared on Emtech’s stage Thursday to offer audiences her thoughts on the technology industry’s new innovations, and of course, wearable technology.
Unfortunately for consumers, Jepsen kept her promise to Brin and remained mum about the products she and her team are plotting over at Google X, but she did share some some interesting opinions on consumer electronics in general Thursday, highlighted by Technology Review, and effectively stressed what she believes are key to any future successful products.
