You may have read that Andy Rubin, best known for his work on Android at Google, is leaving the company to start a hardware incubator.
Of his departure, CEO Larry Page wrote, “I want to wish Andy all the best with what’s next. With Android he created something truly remarkable—with a billion plus happy users. Thank you.”
While Rubin was instrumental in building Android, he had recently spent time helping Google to run their robotics efforts. No wonder he’s become interested in hardware!
It’s not clear whether or not Google will play a role in Rubin’s new venture, but either way we trust that we’ll have to update our list of the top hardware incubators soon enough 🙂
