Everyone knows that Google is the king of search engines and that Google has dozens of Internet properties and applications. But did you know that Google is also big into all kinds of hardware? Google is into creating some of the top hardware tech on the planet, and it’s looking to become a dominant player in hardware tech as well as the Internet. In this article, we will take a close look at Alphabet’s (aka Google’s) hardware tech, including driverless cars, Nexus tablets, Pixel Smartphones, Chromecast, Chromebooks and Google home. So, open up the notes section of your browser as we take a spyglass look into Google’s hardware divisions.

In a recent article entitled “Ohio Is Building The Country’s Longest Driverless Car Ready Highway,” it shows how many cities in the U.S. are embracing and implementing driverless cars.
