With Motorola sold, Google can focus on robots, Glass and smart homes

With Moto sale to Lenovo, Google looks to the future

Now that Google has gotten rid of Motorola Mobility, the company can focus on its newest projects, like the smart home, wearable computers and robotics.

"Selling off Motorola frees Google to focus on new areas of growth and they are focused on quite a few," said Jeff Kagan, an independent industry analyst. "GoogleX is the part of the company that focuses on the future. Some of the most recent ideas range from the Nest system for home automation to robotics, driverless cars, elevators to space, pharmaceuticals, cancer treatments and other medical and health-related business."
