Many of you will probably remember this year’s iteration of Google I/O, the company’s annual developer conference; they put on a super ridiculous demonstration of Google Glass that included skydivers, mountain bike jumping, and a man rappelling down the side of the conference venue. They also announced the Nexus 7, the mini-tablet that has gone on to be a pretty successful product for Google, and the Nexus Q, which…hasn’t.
Now, it looks like Google is getting ready to do it all over again. They’ve just announced via the Google Developers page on Google+ that next year’s Google I/O will go down May 15-17, at the same San Francisco conference hall as this year’s event, the Moscone Center West. There’s no telling what sort of hijinks they’ll get up to this time around, but we’re expecting some cool new products and – of course – more Glass-related hype.
If you’re a developer and you’d like to attend, Google says that registration details will become available in February. Like most developer conferences, the ticket in the door isn’t cheap, but you do get a bunch of free goodies (this year, everyone in attendance got a Galaxy Nexus, a Nexus 7, and a Nexus Q on the house). You’ll also get some unique opportunities, like how this year’s attendees had the chance to pre-order the developer beta hardware of Google Glass for the cool price of $1500.
Let’s hope Google’s antics at I/O 2013 live up to the extreme sports-filled festivities that were the highlight of I/O 2012.
