This design is what happened when I crossed the materials and lighting from my “Q*Bert Club” series with the animation idea I saw I by another one of my new favorite GIF makers on Tumblr, flrngif.

The new Compressor Head episode is finally here!

We know you've been waiting on pins and needles for the next episode of Compressor Head, and it's finally here! +Colt McAnlis returns as the algorithm obsessed geek who loves to share his knowledge with the programmers of the world. He’s joined by fellow Googler Mike Burrows, co-inventor of the Burrows-Wheeler transform, an almost magical algorithm that will turn your head inside out.  

Stay tuned to the Google Developers YouTube channel (youtube.com/googledevelopers) for the soon to be released episodes 5 and 6, coming your way Friday mornings from the Googleplex in Mountain View CA.
