Nasa plans to send Google’s 3D smartphones into space to help the function of free-flying robots inside the Space Station.
The robots, known as Spheres (Synchronised Position Hold, Engage, Reorient, Experimental satellites), currently have a low amount of capabilities.

It is hoped the smartphones, powered by Google’s Project Tango, will give  the robots a greater skill set.
The robots have been described by experts as “incredibly clever” this can only make them smarter.
When Nasa’s robots first arrived at the International Space Station in 2006, they were only capable of precise movements using small jets of CO2, which propelled the devices forwards at around an inch per second.
In an attempt to make the robots smarter and of more use to astronauts, engineers at Nasa sent smartphones to the space station, which they had purchased from Best Buy.
Astronauts then attached the phones to the Spheres, giving them more visual and sensing capabilities.

I think this is really cool i hope it works for them

Google-owned Nest purchased Wi-Fi video monitoring company Dropcam for $555 million.The Dropcam, which sells for $150 to $200, allows users to monitor their homeon the go. They also have a cloud-based archive service is available for $10 to $30 per month. It was crystal clear when Google bought Nest for $3.2 billion earlier this year that it was not just purchasing a thermostat company. Instead, Google was investing in a smart home platform and the great design pedigree of the Nest founders.The Nest thermostat only has one motion sensor, and depending on where it sits in the house, it likely does not pick up nearly as much information on the comings and goings of the household as a Dropcam could. The Dropcam family of products also includes Dropcam Tabs that can help keep an eye on which doors and windows are open. That information could, in turn, help to fine-tune the Nest thermostat to provide an even better temperature settings.

Cool Sky cars to be built in Tel Aviv.
A 500m loop will be built on the campus of Israel Aerospace Industries which could soon be followed by a commercial network.The plan is to allow passengers to order one of the sky cars on their smartphone to meet them at a station and then head off to their destination. The vehicles will be able to achieve speeds of up to 70km/h (43mph) although it is expected to offer much faster vehicles, when it goes commercial. The system should be up and running by the end of 2015
