Who says Cloud practitioners are all work and no play? This past April Fools day Google Cloud tried to sneak one past us and promised to change the way we think about the Cloud with this video on the Actual Cloud – “the world’s first cloud offering running on servers in the troposphere, inside actual clouds.”
Actual Cloud promised features such as Stormboost to draw on charges from electrical fields during thunderstorms and CloudDrops to provide blazingly fast content delivery to all of your users using raindrops!
But who knows, stranger predictions have come true!
“It will soon be possible to transmit wireless messages all over the world so simply that any individual can carry and operate his own apparatus.” Nikola Tesla, New York Times, 1909.
