The best tech snaps of 2011
From datacentres inside churches to outsourcing centres in the heart of rural India, the world of tech offered up some striking images in 2011. Here, silicon.com rounds up the best of them.
Google unveiled the rather natty looking design for its new London offices in February this year.
The new offices, designed by Scott Brownrigg Interior Design, capture a look that mixes the British seafront with a modern aesthetic, and include unconventional features such as timber beach huts that serve as meeting rooms and giant dice that double as videoconference booths.

World's largest touchscreen
People impressed by the screen real estate offered by the Apple iPad need to check out the Reality Touch Theatre, described as the world's biggest touchscreen interface.
Unveiled in February the touchscreen, based at the University of Groningen in Holland, is based on a cylindrical 3D theatre that has been upgraded to be able to process more than 100 touches at any one time.

Android marketing madness at Mobile World Congress
It was hard to get away from Google's Android mobile OS at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year - with the green robot looming large over this year's show.
If the posters or giant Android models didn't take delegates' fancy then there was even a giant Android slide for them to try out.
