Very cool photo by +Brian Matiash on my #Chromecast. I really like many of the pictures featured there!

So this is why I think #Google 's " #material " design language isn't just a fancy way of new graphical user interface design but maybe a revolution on how we really interact with future devices supporting it!

+Matias Duarte really understands what designing user interfaces mean! (Have a special look at the part of the attached video where he describes the metaphors of the "Desktop").

So why do I think that "material" is something bigger than only a new fancy design with drop shadows and animations? - I think with a new framework like this, it is possible to define depth in graphical user interfaces like an ordinary button on your phone, tablet, watch, whatever has. So it may be possible to produce a device in the future (to be honest: I think Google is working on that with partners!) that can take that information and maybe let a touch display somehow feature the height information for visually impaired persons or at least making inputs on your touchscreens more reliable and therefore enhance accuracy and speed on user input! How may that be done? Imagine a phone vibrating stronger if a virtual material object is closer to screen glass or the other way round. But that doesn't stop there: Imagine a display that really can let the user feel physical depth with micro steps between different pixels. The result may be a really touchable interface that follows human experiences of material interaction in the real world. #Google  even did announce this feedback indirect during their "material" introduction video when the "pixels" came out of the screen. Seriously that was the point that impressed me most about this whole shift and that was the point when most people in the room applauded without even knowing why they really applauded.

Not a big deal, but a logical step into modern touchable user interfaces and a big step into the real goal of touchscreens: Building real world user interfaces without the boundaries of real objects. So "material" can also be considered of a modern fresh way of skeuomorphism design principles.

What do you think +Roman Nurik+Matias Duarte, +Adam Powell. +Marcus Körner, +Martin Gude and all the other user interface interested followers? Am I right on that? Would be interesting to read a response on if I'm right or wrong with my estimation or my thinkings in the area of user interaction principles in "Material".
"It is a sufficiently advanced form of paper as to be indistinguishable from magic." Matias Duarte, vice president of design at Google, is telling me about the central principle of Material Design....

With this community I wonder if the old +Google TV Developers and +Google TV pages are obsolete now? Also I'm not an attendee of the I/O as I didn't get the chance I wonder if there is a way to buy the ADT-1 box for developing for the new plattform.

Back when Google TV was newly introduced +Christian Kurzke helped me out with a development box from Logitech for my Android courses that I occasionally teach at my local university and I guess that Revue box will not be updated or am I wrong? Would be cool to show of the new UI paradigms to the students.

I am outside US, but posted the address of US Forwarding service. I hope there are some chances to get a unit.

Can someone of you test this positional audio examples on iOS please and tell me if the work properly? (Use headphones to properly hear the 3D audio effect)

So langsam wirft Sochi immer größere Schatten für mich. Mittlerweile sind +Julian Rapp und ich auch schon in der Sky Sports News HD App vorgestellt worden, auf Samsung Geräten im Play Store zu finden und mit dickem Sochi Banner auf der Startseite. Untrr iOS im AppStore und dann in der App unter der Kategorie "Olympia" zu finden.

Natürlich werde ich euch auch hier und auf Twitter weiterhin auf dem Laufenden halten. Jetzt geht es erstmal zu einem Interview mit der Fuldaer Zeitung.

Finally I found some time to play around with #Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) in terms of the #XMPP  Stream variant (not the HTTP everyone uses it variant!). What I found was the following: After I finally got a #TLS secured connection to the Cloud COnnection Server (CCS) and got the first response the Google Server closes the connection, no chance to send the authentication XML piece. Any hints anyone?

Btw. +Android Developers : Please correct the typo error on this page: http://developer.android.com/google/gcm/ccs.html . It features a response XML element of "str:features" but the actual answer I receive from the CCS is "stream:features" (which is slightly longer, but makes more sense).

Math fun on a saturday afternoon. Can someone ecplain how to calculate the distance between two points on a WGS84 ellipsoid to me? Also I'm interested in the vertical difference between a third point and the great ellipse formed by the two other points (also called cross track distance in spherical trigonometry). As third big problem I'm interested in some kind of 'vecor' style direction on that ellipsoid to determin of I'm moving in the opposite direction.

Can someone help? Maybe someone from +Philipp Kandal's team?

I really love the design. Not sure about a missing heart rate sensor, but I would love to see it in there, but because of the design I wouldn’t miss it.

Hi, just received the mail that was also introducing this community. It also featured that the Cast devices are updated already. How can I check if mine is really updated? Also, I read something about the 'developer mode' that can be activated in the chrome extension. But all I got after doing multiple double clicks was one field for adding a domain for debugging. How has the whole signing process etc. changed with the final release? Do I have to change my App ID?

You definitely need a new appID.  Go to the portal.  cast.google.com/publish
