Bangalore: Google is venturing into lands that are very foreign to the Internet search giant. Yesterday we covered the company’s acquisition of Boston Dynamics, a company that has garnered a reputation for itself in the robotics industry by creating rugged all-terrain chemical-weapon-resistant robots for the U.S. military. In addition to the Google’s latest robotic obsession to take moon shots at technology, the search giant has already made inroads into self-driving cars, smart glasses, internet balloons, flying machines to tap solar energy and many such sci-fi technologies.  Google’s robotic ambitions have everyone around the world excited. In the last few months alone the search giant has acquired eight robotics companies. While they are being tight-lipped about this entire project, reports indicate that they intend to robotize the manufacturing and logistics departments; which for sure is just the start of the next big robotic revolution.

Google’s robot army now includes ones that can run faster than Usain Bolt, scale walls using “micro claws”, jump nine meters into the air, hurl cinder-blocks at ease and more. Let us take a look at all the eight companies Google has acquired recently, as compiled by PC Magazine.
