AllThingsD reports that Andy Rubin isn’t likely to join Google’s X Lab though, as he wants to work on robotics and home automation, which seems to relate to Android @ Home.
We’re just going to have to sit back and relax until we hear an official announcement from the Mountain View-based company of what this new discovery is. The chances of finding out what it is aren't likely. Google’s X Lab works on 100 projects at a time before allowing the public to glimpse their eyes on even one of those projects.
