Android to Soon be in Your Kitchen?
Google CEO Eric Schmidt said his software, which is known worldwide for its applications could be well suited to take control of appliances too. During the CES it has been talking a lot of Android and its implementation in televisions, but it seems that this is not enough for the CEO of the search engine company, he says that smartphones, tablets and even TVs turn out to be a very small market even if we think about how we could use Android.
It seems that Google wants to dominate the world as increasingly looks for ways to cover more space in our homes, and even Schmidt says there are already companies working to implement Android in coolers. Maybe in a refrigerator sound like a crazy idea, but I can not imagine how we could remove it out of our smartphone having it connected to our kitchen. Turn on the machine without being at home, set the oven, lower the temperature of the refrigerator, etc..
Still sounds like something crazy, but a matter of time for this to be increasingly seen as something normal. What a year for Google and year of innovation often waits for us users.
