Google scraps floating showroom

Written by Nick Farrell



Building a mystery

One of the mysterious barges that Google built and never used has now been sold without anyone working out what the search engine was doing with them.

Google confirmed it is scrapping at least one of the mysterious floating tech “showrooms.” For some reason the buying of the barges attracted a lot of headlines, speculation and some ridicule. The giant Internet company wouldn't comment on the fate of a second barge, floating in the Port of Stockton.

It had been expected that Google was planning a tour of San Francisco Bay and other waterfront sites. But the barge has sat in the same place ever since and there has been no signs of any work on the platform.

One of the rumors had been that the barge was to be a traveling showroom for Glass and other cutting-edge Google products.
