Hon Hai, Google team up on robotics, WSJ says

Taiwan’s Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. Ltd., the parent of Foxconn Technology Group (02038.HK), has been working with Google Inc. since last year to develop robot technologies, the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday, citing unnamed sources. Hon Hai chairman Terry Guo met Andy Rubin, the “father of Android” and Google’s robotics chief, in Taipei to discuss industry progress. Google acquired eight robotics firms last year, and Rubin is understood to have asked Guo to help Google buy and integrate an unnamed tech firm, the Economic Daily News reported Wednesday.
