    About Google X Lab (click for full article)

    "Often a time it is only a "Bond" villain who, besides having a secret lair, has a set of scientists in lab coats, working away trying to create a death ray or rob Fort Knox.

    Of course it's not just the bad guys who have all the cool toys and lab coats working for them. Research and development is departmentalized now in nearly every major organization and if you want 'out-there' stuff, you've always got the US military's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) which comes up with stuff like robotic dogs and everyone's favorite, UAVs.

    But if you want really 'out-there', Google's very secret "X Lab" might just tickle your fancy."
