A couple of weeks ago, there were suspicious Google barges spotted in the San Francisco Bay. From then speculations flew. Were they floating data centers? Are they floating Google offices? Today, Google released a statement to put down the rumors. A Google spokeswoman stated:
Google Barge … A floating data center? A wild party boat? A barge housing the last remaining dinosaur? Sadly, none of the above. Although it’s still early days and things may change, we’re exploring using the barge as an interactive space where people can learn about new technology.
Well, there you go. They’re floating show rooms! Seems more of a publicity stunt by Google, kinda reminds me of the sky divers they used to show off Google Glass.
