The lights are on
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the tech giant Google is creating an Android-powered game console, and a wristwatch device that will connect with your Android phone.
According to the Wall Street Journal's Amir Efrati, his sources have revealed that Google "The Internet giant hopes to design and market the devices itself and release at least one of them this fall."
The report states that Google has been influenced to make the move partially in anticipation of Apple adding a considerable gaming element to the next generation of its Apple TV device, as well as the excitement over the Android-powered, Kickstarter-funded Ouya console which recently released.
The wristwatch product would likely connect with your phone via Bluetooth signal, and display information and interact with an Android phone.
The company is also planning on releasing a new version of its Android operating system this fall.

I think Google's about to either get its chops busted or its butt dusted. Uh-oh.
