What is Google up to this time? It’s the company that never stops in bringing in more innovations and continues to invest in just about anything to help its progress.
The company has just announced that it now takes a hold of Flutter and that only means it already owns it. It has bought Flutter for a price that has not been disclosed. But, we are all sure that it involves millions of dollars, as we all know about the company.
“Today, we are thrilled to announce that we will be continuing our research at Google. We share Google’s passion for 10x thinking and we’re excited to add their rocket fuel to our journey.”
This was a statement that was also released by the CEO of Flutter, Navneet Dalal. He confirmed that Flutter is now a part of Google and its people are looking forward to working with the company for a long time.
Flutter: What Difference Will It Bring?
In case some of you don’t know, Flutter is an existing company and the name of an application itself that is widely used by some of the big companies in the world of technology. Its application is focused mainly to be attached on webcams in order to receive and follow hand gesture commands.
This application allows the users to control their devices with a wave of a hand. It can allow controlling music, videos, camera and many other applications. Its hand gesture recognizing program can recognize commands from users that are six feet away from the device.
The same application is also a partner of some famous applications and not just with Google alone. Applications like iTunes, Spotify, Keynote, VLC Player, YouTube and the likes have already taken advantage of the features and advantages that this application can offer.
The same features are expected to be available in any of the devices that the large company will release soon.
Working With Flutter, Will Blow Microsoft Kinect Away
Everyone’s wondering what got into the acquiring company’s plans and it decided to buy Flutter. More speculations are coming out that we should be expecting Nexus devices with the Flutter application feature very soon. Of course, we can expect Chromebooks that can recognize hand gestures to be coming out very soon too.
However, people are strongly convinced that the company is aiming to defeat Kinect by Microsoft. It has been reported that this is the exact reason why the company bought Flutter in the first place. Microsoft is the first one and still continues to be the leading company to release devices equipped with the motion detection technology.
Google is definitely determined to defeat its rivals by gradually partnering with companies that can help with its improvement. Partnering with Flutter is a good decision for the company and it gives everyone the idea and the high hopes that we can be expecting for so much more from the company.
Do you think Google is planning to rival Microsoft’s Kinect for real or you think it’s just another plan to be cancelled?
