Google X Lab to unveil a "moonshot" later this year

Google's X Lab is sort of the focused incarnation of Larry Page's "iterate fast and break things" philosophy of development. The X Lab is where you find the most ambitious products, but also the most secretive, because failing is an important part of the process. Now, head of the X Lab, Astro Teller, has teased a new "moonshot" coming from the team later this year...

The problem with google is that they don't need to focus on "innovation" yet they should focus on improvements in their existing products and services before moving onto new ones.

Wrong.

Innovation is their business. It is the alpha and the omega of Google's existence. If they stop innovating, they lose. They'll drop out of the forefront like so many tech companies before.

Google has enough resources to multi-task. They can simultaneously improve what they have _and_ come up with new things.

My guess is universal voice control for all our toys. PC, phones, tablets, tvs, car, stereo, etc. Sounds a little far fetched but I'd love to see an easy to integrate solution.
