Google. You know it as the tech giant with the colorful logo, the cute mascot and the creepy, privacy-invading ad tracking scheme.

Google X is a quasi-secret division of Google whose only mission is to invent crazy, brilliant, science-fiction technology that others might consider impossible. Its projects are called "moonshots." It sounds like something out of the latest Marvel comics movie, but it's real.
