Google™ self-driven car gets license in Nevada

The self-driven cars of Google Inc. will soon be seen on Nevada roads as the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has approved the nation’s first autonomous vehicle license. The self-driven car in question here is a Toyota Prius that Google modified with its experimental driver-less technology, developed by Stanford professor and Google Vice President Sebastian Thrun.

The license was granted after the DMV officials rode along on drives on highways, in Carson City neighborhoods and along the famous Las Vegas Strip. The Nevada legislature last year authorized self-driven cars for the state’s roads, the first such law in the United States. The same law went into effect on March 1, 2012.

How the car runs?

Google’s self-driven car uses video cameras, radar sensors, lasers, and a database of information collected from manually driven cars to help navigate and allow the driver to just kick back and relax.

Autonomous vehicles are the “car of the future,” commented Nevada DMV director Bruce Breslow. The state also has plans to eventually grant license to autonomous vehicles owned by the members of the public. Other car companies are also seeking self-driven car licenses in Nevada, the DMV said.

Google+™ Hangouts on Air offers Live Broadcasting

Google+ is making the live Hangouts broadcasting feature available for all its users. The feature was till now available to a limited number of professional broadcasters only. With Hangouts on Air, the user can broadcast live video publicly from a Google+ stream, a YouTube channel or embed it on a website.

 

Is this simple video streaming?

Hangouts on Air is more than simple video streaming. When the live session is going on, the user can peep inside the hangout to check how many viewers are watching, and the show is recorded automatically. Once live streaming is finished, the recording is uploaded to the user’s YouTube channel, as well as on Google+ to keep for posterity.

 

The use of Hangout on Air goes beyond using a camera connected to your computer, as you can start a hangout from the Google+ app for Android.

 

Google said that it is rolling out availability of the service gradually over the next few weeks, as “launching millions of live stations takes some doing.” Once the user enables Hangouts on Air, he can link his YouTube account for automatic recording.

 

Google™ enhances formatting features of Google™ Docs

To enhance its standards in offering online editing tools, Google Inc. has added more than 450 new fonts and over 60 new templates to its word-processing program Google Docs.

Now the users can select those fonts in which they are most interested and import the same into their collection for access from the usual font menu. The users just have to click on the ‘Font’ button and select ‘Add Fonts’ at the foot of the drop-down menu to do so.

Image import functionality

In addition to bringing in a huge array of new fonts, Google has extended Google Doc’s image import functionality. This will allow the users to import images straight from Google Drive, the LIFE photo archive or even directly from a web camera. Google has also introduced more than 60 new template documents enabling the users to get straight down to business instead of wasting time in creating a template.

The templates are designed for work, home, school, fun, holiday and more. Examples of some of the types of templates include resumes, newsletters, recipes, photo-sharing and legal invoices.

Google™ Plus gets a ‘Share’ button

Google Plus now has added a ‘Share’ button whose function is similar to the ‘Share’ button of social networking platform Facebook and microblogging website Twitter. The new white and red ‘Share’ button of Google Plus will now allow the users to spread the content on the Google Plus social media scene.

The users will see the ‘Share’ button attached to all the favorite blogs and articles across the Internet world. If the user wants to share any particular post, he will be provided with an option to either share the post to Google Plus, or with his friends, followers, and specific people.

The functioning of Google Plus ‘Share’ button is different to that of the Google ‘+1’ button, which recommends links that show up in search results. Instead of implying your endorsement with ‘+1’, the ‘Share’ button allows the user to share an article with his circles or followers – a behavior users are accustomed to when using the Facebook ‘Like’ button or Twitter sharing.

Google™ Project Glass is creating hype

The most talked about project from Google¬– “Project Glass” has now seen the light of the day. This long-rumored glass project with augmented reality uses a video “One day…” to demonstrate how these Google glasses work. The video showcases how a user can undertake various tasks of the smartphones, such as clicking pictures, making a video call, scheduling meetings, checking weather, getting directions, and many similar tasks.

Google is officially planning to release these glasses later this year and within the price range of $250- $500. The search giant is also planning to test the prototypes in the coming months.

According to Google, “The team is gathering feedback from users on Project Glass, according to a post on Google+ by Babak Parviz, Steve Lee and Sebastian Thrun. The post contains a few ‘design photos’ of people wearing augmented reality glasses.”
