Google’s secret X Lab is nothing short of amazing. The company is responsible for stunning products like Google Glass, self-driving cars and 16,000-core neural network that works like a virtual brain. Despite the company’s output being sporadic, Google’s X lab could be getting ready to unveil something new that could be ready for a launch soon.
Speaking at SXSW and reported on by GigaOm, Google’s Astro Teller detailed the Google X lab, but more interestingly revealed that we should be expecting an announcement of a new discovery “in the coming month.”

There is, of course, a lot of speculation surrounding Teller’s statement, including Andy Rubin stepping down as head of Android. 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.

I can’t even imagine. Not even a clue what this could be. Exciting.
Where is there a space for something new in tech?
Hmm, i sense the word ‘discovery’ is important here. I don’t think it is something technical, as in, product based. But more, theoretical, that can be applied to products.
I hope its something like the graphene battery, or a way to make wireless charging efficient.
I reckon you are right about the significance of the word “discovery”, and, based on that, my guess would be something related to augmented reality.
Life on Mars?
So Andy Ruben is going to take over Glass and Sergey will move on to other things.
It will be a new kind of data connection. Lightning fast and everywhere accessable from launchday one. A gamechanging Technology that would be huge
