Google Hardware Hacking Build Technology

Inside Google's Secret Employee Hackerspace 84

An anonymous reader writes "One of the more secret perks on Google's campus is their hackerspace that even most of the employees don't know about. Only the most skilled need apply, but once you're in, you have a treasure trove of equipment at your disposal. While there are no restrictions on what employees can build for personal use, some pretty important hardware has come out of the Google hackerspace over the years. Their Streetview trikes were designed and built there, as were some components for their self-driving cars. Yet another reason I want to work for Google." I guess the AP blew that "secret."

    Anyone that wants to work for Google needs to know how the company got its funding.... (aka CIA, aka NSA, aka Mil... )...

    Every time I read something like this I have to laugh. I don't want to, but that's the response they conditioned into me.
