Google Wave

I am blown away with Google Wave.

Google Wave is a new tool for communication and collaboration on the web, coming later this year. Watch the demo video above, sign up for updates and learn more about how to develop with Google Wave.

This will probably be the Facebook/Twitter killer.

I can imagine how I am going to use this. Email conversations as I plan a vacation trip with my siblings.

There are a number of impressive features that we didn’t even go into (yes, there’s that much to this). One of my favorites is that not only is search real-time in Wave, but it’s really live. For example, if you remove an ‘e’ from “Here” it will disappear from the results for that word. Likewise, if you add the “e” back on, it will pop up again — instantaneously.

Another great feature is the advanced spell checker that not only looks through a dictionary for spelling, but looks for context in your sentence. It’s crazy to think that this could work, but it does as they’re showing it off.

And yes, Wave will work with Twitter. The team itself created a gadget for it that they call “Twave” that brings in tweets from your stream, complete with your contacts’ Twitter icons. You can respond to these tweets from within Wave and they will go back to your Twitter stream. But the best feature is Twave’s search feature which scans Twitter in real time and updates live when new results come in. You can use this to track anything you want in real-time.

Now the team is showing off a wave that can translate to other languages in real-time. Again, impressive.
