Google has recently announced plans of developing a new operating system called Brillo that would be lightweight and suited for all devices where a computational memory and application is required. Be it internet connected and intelligent doorknobs, light bulbs, small electronic devices etc, which form the next generation Internet of Things, Google’s Brillo would be compact and fit where Android fails, as it requires at least 512 MB of RAM, whereas Brillo would just need 32 MB of space which is perfect for compact devices.
Google’s Brillo has stiff competition from Microsoft’s IoT (Internet of Things) version of Windows 10 and Apple’s HomeKit. The last time we saw something similar from Google-Andriod@Home, it was scrapped after being announced. Let’s hope that this compact version makes internet realy portable and easily connectable.
