Google's Mystery Barges Are Showrooms: report


Google mysterious barges may be luxury party venues and showrooms, according to a San Francisco report.

The two vessels made out of stacked shipping containers, seen at Pier 1 at Treasure Island in San Francisco, California and at Portland, Maine harbor, are invitation-only luxury showrooms for Google's Glass wearable computers and other gadgets, San Francisco TV station KPIX reported on Friday.

The report says that the structures will have a top-floor "party deck," complete with "bars, lanais and other comforts." The project is being directed by Google co-founder Sergey Brin, who heads up the Google division developing Google Glass, according to KPIX.



The floating barges, which Google has not confirmed that are even affiliated with the company, have given feed for speculation this week, describing the San Francisco vessel as a floating data center that would house banks of computers.

Google has announced the expansion of its $1,500 Glass devices, by allowing testers to buy beta versions of the device this year, and also allow each of those to "invite" three friends to purchase the gadget.
