We should still be in the sleepy midst of a cold iciness, however Google’s developer workforce is already looking forward to the summer season with a teaser for the 2018 variation of its annual I/O developer event, as first spotted by 9to5Google. if you be savvy enough to crack the (binary) code of the preliminary tweet, you’ll get the URL, and there you’ll be presented with a Google Side Road View that lets you explore the reception house of what’s it appears a Google Builders construction.

Plans are coming alongside for #io18…

All Of The little hints that Google has scattered all over that foyer point to the subject matter of sisters:

The calendar on the reception is set to August 5th, Nationwide Sister’s Day The book on the espresso table is named Sister Carrie The landscape picture displayed on the TV on the wall looks like the three Sisters volcanic peaks in Oregon There’s what seems like a portray of the Brontë sisters at the reverse wall

After some time, you could need to get earlier the foyer and thru to the following room, and those hints about sisters might be your key.

It’s greatly just like the break out room puzzles chances are you’ll to find in the real international, except performed in Side Road View and tuned perfectly to entice Google’s audience of geeky drawback solvers. The August date is likely just a puzzle prop as opposed to an actual indication of whilst Google I/O will happen this yr. Google has historically hosted I/O in Might, and there’s been no indication of that shifting this year. Heck, even the sister subject matter in the end turns out to break down after you get prior the initial puzzle.

But right here’s the tastiest factor in amongst all these teasers:

Pineapple cake. Pineapple upside-down cake, to present it its proper identify. At a time while Google is calling for a reputation for the version of Android that may be to observe Oreo. Now this would be a very official (and very early) revelation of the next Android model’s name. Or it could be simply any other juicy a part of Google’s fiendish tease.
