Google launches Android Experiments website, shows off open source Android and Android Wear apps

Google's Android Experiments

Google has had its Chrome Experiments up for some time now, showing off experimental apps for the browser. Now, the company has opted to launch a brand new site, this one focused on the future of apps for not only Android, but also Android Wear.

With Android Experiments, Google is aiming to showcase applications that use forward-thinking technology, interfaces and aesthetics. The applications that are showcased on the site, of which there are nearly 20, are all open source, too, so developers can find out what makes them function and use those same ideas to build something else. The apps range from options for Android tablets, like IOIO Plotter, to experimental watch faces for Android Wear.

For developers that feel their apps should be showcased on the site, Google is now accepting submissions.

Google did tell TechCrunch that while these experimental apps won’t be given a dedicated collection in the Google Play Store, the apps can be searched through the digital storefront, and downloaded from there, too. Check out one of the apps, IOIO Plotter, below.
