Google goes epic

T3 - - Hot 100 -

Just when you think Google might be tak­ing its foot off the gas, it un­leashes a tsunami of new and greatly up­dated tech. The cen­tre­piece of its lat­est drive to make your life eas­ier (and more Google­cen­tric) is its Home IoT com­mand cen­tre – think Ama­zon Echo but with the benefit of years of your search, email and mo­bile his­tory to beef up its learn­ing al­go­rithm. Google’s work in se­man­tic search and voice recog­ni­tion has also led to Google As­sis­tant, the UI of the fu­ture for all Google prod­ucts. An­droid Nougat and Wear 2.0 are no soft up­dates to Google’s mo­bile OSes, and Day­dream is the lat­est at­tempt to pro­vide VR to the masses. $129/£100 (Google Home), madeby.google.com
