LAS VEGAS — Google is everywhere this week during CES. And thus, Google workers are everywhere. And they’re pretty easy to spot, thanks to a “uniform” choice that stands out among a monochromatic sea of tech geeks.
The Google Assistants, as the name on the back of their jackets, jumpsuits, vests, and shirts reveals, have mostly been spotted working the large Hey Google interactive kiosks around town. The tall displays are designed to spit out colorful balls to users looking to win prizes from the tech giant.
The getups are all white, from head to toe, with the exception of blue, red, yellow and green dots for accents here and there. Each worker wears a full jumpsuit — like they’re getting ready to paint a house in rainbow colors.
Some have puffy white jackets. Others wear white vests. They also have Hey Google knit hats with a puffy ball on top.
Unfortunately, the past two days the outfits have been obscured by rain ponchos, as Las Vegas is being hit with the worst possible weather 180,000 visitors could hope for.
But, at least it’s not as cold as, say, an ice planet.
You should Google “Luke Skywalker Hoth” to get a better idea of why I can’t keep from doing a double-take every time I pass one of these assistants.
