Google is acquiring Gecko Design, a firm that helps develop products for companies like Hewlett-Packard, Slingmedia, Dell, Fitbit and furniture maker Herman Miller. Financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed but the Los Gatos, California company will be rolled into Google’s X lab, which is responsible for items like Glass and the search giant’s driverless car.

“This is an incredible opportunity for everyone at Gecko,” Jacques Gagne, Gecko’s president and owner, wrote on the company’s website. “We are very excited and honored to join Google(x) and work on a variety of cutting edge projects.”

We’ve reached out to Google for comment regarding this acquisition and will update this news article if any new details become available.
