Google Fiber Challenge: What Apps Can You Build for Gigabit Internet?

Google is holding a so-called “Fiber Challenge” to see what application developers can build to take full advantage of the increasingly fast internet speeds across the world. Building applications for gigabit network speeds allows developers and future consumers to get a taste of what the future holds for the world of application development. Among the topics to be explored at the conference are building applications that are incredibly responsive, with no latency or delay, as well as applications that allow users to touch, move and control things with their hands, eyes and body language. With the possibility of applications having no latency or delay, places such as healthcare facilities and other organizations with highly important data that needs to be accessed at a moments notice, the world of application development will most likely see a large increase in demand for enterprise applications. According to the article, Google is looking for a “new kind of thinker” to develop a “new breed of apps” that will help shape the future of application development.
