Fuchsia is still a work in progress which has been available on Github for a while now but we haven't really seen a demonstration of it in action. A Texan enthusiast has been working on creating one and you can take a peek at it in this video over at The Register. The tiny OS is design to run on almost anything, from smart light bulbs to phone and even full sized computers. It is based on BSD with additional resources developed at MIT and will be backwards compatible with current Android libraries.
"When Fuchsia broke cover last August, we noted the project's ambition. The presence of a compositor indicated it was capable of running on more than lightbulbs and routers, although the tiny new Magenta kernel also allows it go there too."
