The veil of secrecy surrounding Google’s mysterious X lab may be getting pulled back later on today, as evident from new developments around the web in the last couple of days. The X lab, revealed by the New York Times a few months ago, could reportedly have engineers working on projects spanning from plates that post what you’re eating on your social networks to driverless cars, robots, and things most of us have never even dreamt of.

I took a look at the website and presentation video, seems like a social brainstorming place designed “for solving global problems” (sounds a bit over the top, don’t you think?)  Hope it’s not another brilliant Google Wave idea. We’ll see.
