Google Acquires Gecko Design to Help With X Projects

The railways Google is riding on are reeking from Google’s increasing weight as more and more companies are joining the wining train as they feel it is the fastest way to the terminus of their dreams. The Google tech “fraternity” is regularly initiating more handsome members as Google intends forming a solid diverse trophies that could get its competitors bidding for hanging ropes- off the market.


Google is now acquiring Gecko Design, the technical hands responsible for Nike’s Fitbit fitness device and One Laptop Per Child PC projects. Though the amount for this transaction isn’t officially published yet, this new acquisition is expected to effectively market Google’s fashion in its consequent projects.

Gecko Design which is the California-based Los Gatos Company (founded in 1996) is largely expected to be domesticated into the Google X plan. This is to be comprised of Gecko Design’s President Jacque Gagné and its workforce, as well as a nicely collected skunkworks combination which had produced the Google’s driverless cars and the Google Glass techno-specs including the Project Loon Wi-Fi which is still in Googles’ wombs.

This development could be parented by the smooth working relationship both parties had sewn while working on some behind-the-curtains project last year.

“We’re a piece that Google X doesn’t necessarily have. People come to Gecko because they don’t know how to turn ideas into real products, especially when it’s something that hasn’t been done before. That’s what attracted Google X,” Gagne said. “This is an incredible opportunity for everyone at Gecko. We are very excited and honored to join Google(x) and work on a variety of cutting edge projects”, he added.


This turn of events would chop the ropes connecting customers like Dell, Logitech and HP to Gecko Design.
