Google looks to repeat Android success with wearable devices

Google (GOOG) plans to soon release a software developer kit for applications for wearable-computing devices as the company looks to repeat its Android success in a different area of gadgetry.

Speaking at the South by Southwest Interactive conference in Austin, Texas, which runs from March 7-16, Google senior VP Sundar Pichai said the company hopes developers will build apps for more than just smartwatches, including even for a jacket with sensors.

Pichai also said that Google has sold over 1M Chromecast products for streaming video from a mobile device to a TV.

    Google is an amazing company. It would be easier to list the things they aren't doing. I admire them for that, and at the same time, that scares me....a little!


    These tiny wearable watches are so cute. That's right CUTE!


    Other than cute, who cares? They will sell millions of them with the right, "Gotta Have It" advertising, and they will all end up in a drawer with our other wrist watches....remember them?
