google io 2014 keynote (6 of 41)

The full schedule for Google I/O 2015, which will take place on May 28th and 29th, is now available online for your viewing pleasure. Google has been very good about keeping its announcements quite this year, which is why the full schedule can help us prepare for what’s to come at the annual developer conference.

The main keynote, which will take place on the 28th, is scheduled to last from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM, followed by Code labs, Sessions & Sandbox events from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM. The next day, Code labs, Sessions & Sandbox events will take place from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM. While that doesn’t sound all too revealing, looking over the list of breakout sessions reveals a little more information.

A few notable sessions include “What’s new in Android”, which takes place at 1:00 PM on the 28th, “Smarter and personalized device authentication with Smart Lock” at 2:00 PM and “What’s next with Project Tango” at 2:30 PM. Then on the 29th from 9:00 AM to 10:15 AM, Google’s ATAP team is set to unveil some type of mystery wearable that will supposedly “blow our socks off”. Here’s what the description reads:

And wearables that we hope will blow your socks off. (We mean this more literally than you might think…) Our goal: break the tension between the ever-shrinking screen sizes necessary to make electronics wearable and our ability to have rich interactions with them. Why can’t you have both? We like to build new things. Sometimes seemingly impossible things. We can build them faster together.

We’re not quite sure what any of this means, so unfortunately we’ll have to wait for I/O to roll around. We do know that Google’s ATAP (Advanced Technology and Projects) team is known for housing crazy ventures like Project Ara, the company’s modular smartphone, and Project Tango, an Android-powered device that can map its movement through space using 3D technology. Whatever will be announced at the conference is beyond us, but it’s bound to be interesting, to say the least.

Aside from the keynote, what session are you most excited to see?
