Google I/O, Google’s big developer fest, is coming at the end of May, and there’s starting to be talk that the search giant will be showing off a new wearable.
Mashable notices that Google’s ATAP hardware team — a hardware skunkworks geared toward rapid success or rapid failure — is doing a session on May 29th at noon Eastern with a loopy but intriguing session description that includes this:
… 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.
Among the ATAP group’s credits is the Project Ara modular smartphone, which is creeping toward commercial release.
The session will be livestreamed.
