Google I/O (28-29 May)
Other than that, Google might show more Android Wear, Auto and TV updates, now that the competition is growing ever so more. And there might me virtual reality. If Google falls back in VR, it might soon face a huge challenge from companies like Oculus, HTC and Sony.
And of course, there will probably be self driving cars! Yes, Google has made prototypes of its self driving cars - these small pod like car are being tested in California (see below). So we shouldn’t be surprised to find a drive at the I/O.
Chrome, too, might just get bigger than ever. If Google improves Chrome and Chrome OS with even more functionality, chromebooks might be able to compete with the Microsoft Surface computers.
Android L still hasn’t seen itself on a large number of devices yet, but Google might still not refrain from releasing the next build of Android. M is sure to carry the same material design introduced in L but might improve on subtle features like split screen/ pinned window apps multitasking capabilities, and greater integration with Android Wear and accessories. This isn’t going to be a big update but will help improve the overall Android experience.
Google seems to have almost perfected autonomous technology, and is on the road to actually produce a car for the public. This seems especially true after Google built 25 prototypes of these tiny cars that have no pedals or steering wheel:

In my future posts, I’ll explore more of these topics, and I’ll cover Google I/O as it happens on the 28th. Do keep Technonerding!
