Is Google a Search Engine ? Well, not any more, its more than just a search engine – it now wants to control every aspect of the internet and online space. Talk of space, they just launched a few balloons in space last week.
Project Loon – Their new innovation from the lab that bought you Google Glasses. The idea of launching these balloons is to cover the world with internet access.
According to Google data more than 75% of the world has no access to internet. The balloons will help beam internet down to earth, Google plans to launch these balloons 12 miles in space to bridge the gap between the internet haves and the have nots.
The first Google balloon was launched last week in Tekapo, New Zealand – A spectacular site with the Alps in the background. Google plans to launch thousands of these jellyfish like translucent balloons to help us reach a wider internet audience.
What do you think about this one from Google Labs ? I think is awesome 🙂
