Did you know not everyone everywhere has access to the internet all the time? (Of course you did. In theory…)
Well, a new idea from the search engine that loves a good doodle has a new rhyme on the horizon — Google balloons — a.k.a. Project Loon.
The giant balloons are more than 50 feet in diameter and are launched into the stratosphere. Once there, they sail about on air currents, connecting with each other and eventually, some serious WiFi. They’re currently being tested in New Zealand (Hobbit alert!) and can provide a connection to about 25 miles of ground.
So is this idea the next big way to log on to ChannelOne.com to vote on the next big thing? Vote in the poll and tell us what you think — and be sure leave a comment telling us why!
