More and more software companies are building hardware

ad+1

Interesting to see a lot of software companies are making custom hardware these days. Microsoft and Google built custom chips to be able to build cloud software that differentiates them from their competitors. On the consumer front Microsoft has a longer track record of it but Google has a bunch of hardware for the home and both Google and Snapchat are building glasses for virtual and augmented reality applications. I envision a lot of people walking into each other and glass doors with these glasses :)
