The plan is to build on the area of about 70 hectares of office and residential buildings (about 3,000 houses), the R&D and shopping centers, to create additional 20,000 jobs. It is also planned to create in this area a massive transport hub. "Extraordinary architecture, urban design, sustainability, trading infrastructure and active public space will be the hallmarks of the town of Google," reads the letter, prepared by the members of the city Council meeting where this issue was resolved.

Google and its partners had been buying land in the region for several months. The two partner investor groups have already invested in property in the region more than $130 million.
While it is impossible to say how it will look in the "city of Google": the entire project is now at the stage of procurement of land and the company hasn't revealed plans for the construction. The city government fully supports the project, but residents fear that the project may deprive poor people of a roof over your head and negatively affect the overall availability of housing in the region.
On the other hand, creating a large transportation hub in San Jose, can partially help the problem with the overheated housing prices in the Valley, as it will allow employees from the Valley to get to the regions where housing is cheaper.

The company Tegway demonstrated a new technology ThermoReal. With its help, the manufacturer was able to invent a thermoelectric device capable of generating heat or cold, depending on changes in the virtual environment. Reported by VentureBeat.
In addition, the device is able to cause the user pain if, for example, the controllable character in the game got injured.
Contraption device conveys these feelings through controllers that work with VR-helmet and are in the hands of the user. A semiconductor device Tegway is heated from one side and cooled on the other by means of electric power, but the device does not produce vibrations.
Interestingly, this technology is also used in refrigerators for cooling wine, which, unlike conventional refrigerators generate cold without vibrations. How the device is heated or cooled, depends on the voltage that is supplied to the thermocouples located inside the device.
For the transmission of pain, the device simultaneously generates heat and cold. Thus, the company managed to create a completely new interface for communication with a computer, which will make the stay of the user in the virtual world even more realistic.
