Google Announces Brillo, an OS for the Internet of Things

Google is looking to the future. Not too far in the future mind you, since the Internet of Things is already upon us. Google (Android) along with collaborator Nest Labs, have developed an operating system for connected devices. Along with Brillo, the two partners have also announced Weave, a software tool to facilitate communication between devices.

Pichai noted the litany of devices soon to be plugged into the Internet آ— parking meters, airport kiosks, farm equipment. Google wants to make sure it is the backbone of this future.
