Google's Osterloh on Innovation Behind New Gadgets

Updated on

Google unfurled fresh phones, speakers, laptops and other familiar consumer devices on Wednesday. The surprise was a new gadget that echoes the company’s earlier controversial stab at futuristic hardware.

Google announced a $249 product called Google Clips, a small, lightweight camera that pairs with its Pixel smartphones, at an event in San Francisco. It can be clipped to tables, chairs or a mantle and snaps pictures that can be stored in the Google Photos app or on the device. The company said it uses machine learning, a form of artificial intelligence, to automatically recognize and take pictures of subjects that are important to users.
