Google announces Android @ Home; targets daily use electronic appliances

In order to make your home appliances directly accessible from your Android device, Google launched a new project called Android @ Home. Announced at Google I/O, it will enable developers to build apps that can discover, connect and communicate with devices and appliances in the home.

Android @ Home will use a new wireless protocol to communicate from electronic appliances in your home.

Project Tungsten:

Showcased at I/O, Project Tungsten is the hardware reference design that runs the Android OS and the Android @ Home software framework. In the example, Google Exec showed home stereo system speakers connected via Android @ Home, and Google Music running on these speakers wirelessly.

More will be known about Android @ Home in the days to come.
