curtwoodward (2147628) writes "Stop drooling over that new iPhone. Put away the fancy tablet. Because the real hardcore nerds find that stuff "boring" and "mind-numbing," says Mary Lou Jepsen, head of the display division at secretive R&D lab Google X. At MIT's EmTech conference, Jepsen said the next generation of "moonshot" tech is much more exciting and interesting. That includes Google X projects like the driverless car and Project Loon, a stratospheric balloon-based wireless network. Oh, and Google Glass. When you work on that kind of stuff all day, the rest of the tech world "Gets depressing. It was so exciting three years ago.""
