Google X Labs Working On Hoverboards and Wolverine Claws [Humor]


No matter which OS you have tattooed across your chest, whether it’s “Team Android” or “Team iOS” I think we can all agree that working for Google definitely has its perks. Besides the fact that Google consistently tops the list of best companies to work for, Google just keeps coming up with all sorts of useful technologies and fun little doohickeys. I’ve said it many times before — it’s hard to not love Google.

Still, for all the great ideas Google has managed to come up with (Android, Google Glass, 100Mbps down Google Fiber network), there’s always seems to be a few that slip through the cracks (Wave, Buzz, etc.). I suppose that’s what prompted the boys at CollegeHumor to come up with this Google parody video highlighting the fact that maybe, just maybe… Google is too ambitious for its own good? Watch the video below and see if you agree.

So what do you guys think? Is Google really just full of crap? Did the video give you chuckle or make your blood boil? The way I see it, if Google can just deliver on Glass and that self-driving car they’ve been showing off — we’ll be good. Forever. Love you, Googs.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. can u post something about the nexus tablet?

  2. nope, not offended. actually pretty funny.

    difference here, is google (and most of their followers) know how to take a joke.

    1. That’s cuz we’re confident in our OS-ality :p

    2. Really?
      I found it hard to see the funny in that. There are so many other things they could make fun off, things that would makes some sense. This is neither funny nor offensive. It is a time-waster imo.

      I bet making fun of the skydiving live-demo making use of a satelite dish was too expensive for them. Or Poke fun at privacy issues with StreetView cars (lots of potential there with examples of ‘snooped’ data). They could have gone with the billion of acquisitions they make (if we can;t do it, we buy someone who can!)
      Or some of their failling products (wave, buzz, etc)

      This was pretty lame imo.

  3. Googles DA bomb baby! Can’t wait for self driving cars.

  4. Really? I though it’s retarded and not funny at all. I guess that’s why it’s called College [community?] Humor, not University Humor.

    1. Go crawl back in the cave and find a slight sense of humor.

    2. Bazinga!!!!

  5. I knew they would make the hover board….

    1. im still waiting for a workng hoverboard… damn you BttF. Damn you Mattel….

  6. ugh I hate having no flash on my phone. JB nice but no Flash makes my life hard.

  7. 1) Google Fiber is 1Gbps (1000Mbps).

    2) It’s symmetrical. So that’s not JUST 1000Mbps down. It’s up, too.

    1. Word. Forgot that zero. Thanks :)

  8. Well, we’d better not wait this kind of REALLY revolutionary products from Apple…
    Funny video. “It’s gonna be just like this… except they’re flying.” :D

  9. I was really hoping for Wolverine claws. :-(

  10. who posted this video must b a apple fanboy….

  11. haha. pretty funny
