It's no secret that Google makes the majority of its revenue from advertising, but it looks like desktop and mobile ads may not be enough for the tech giant. Today a new report from the Wall Street Journal is suggesting that Google is looking into displaying ads on other platforms such as Nest thermostats and more.

Google has reportedly began the process of approving advertising streams on more than just PCs and mobile devices. The fling suggest that Google would like to see ads appearing on "refrigerators, car dashboards, thermostats, glasses, and watches, to name just a few possibilities." Google went on to say that:

"Our expectation is that users will be using our services and viewing our ads on an increasingly wide diversity of devices in the future."

With Google's acquisition of Nest, it seems to be more than half way there already.
