Lots of colors in this rainbow.
 
All the Colors of the Sun

It is still not known why the Sun's light is missing some colors. Here are all the visible colors of the Sun, produced by passing the Sun's light through a prism-like device. The spectrum was created at the McMath-Pierce Solar Observatory and shows, first off, that although our white-appearing Sun emits light of nearly every color, it does indeed appear brightest in yellow-green light. The dark patches in the above spectrum arise from gas at or above the Sun's surface absorbing sunlight emitted below. Since different types of gas absorb different colors of light, it is possible to determine what gasses compose the Sun. Helium, for example, was first discovered in 1870 on a solar spectrum and only later found here on Earth. Today, the majority of spectral absorption lines have been identified - but not all.

FAIRFAX, VA—In the wake of Wednesday’s mass shooting that left nine dead at a church in South Carolina, sources confirmed today that National Rifle Association officials had already started up with their shit about what would be an even greater injustice.

We worked with the great team at ustwo to create principles of VR design in VR. Enjoy!
 
Our design team just released Cardboard Design Lab. It helps you learn VR design principles by walking you through them in VR.

Nice behind-the-scenes on the origin and creation of Material Design. I'm proud to have played a role.

We had a blast presenting this and putting it together. It's a quick summary of some things we've learned or things that have helped us think about VR while working on Google Cardboard.
 
The Designing for Virtual Reality session at I/O is now up on YouTube, in case you missed the live stream: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qwh1LBzz3AU

Today the Google Cardboard team announced Jump - a new way to create and view 360 stereoscopic video. It's hard to describe how awesome an experience it is to see these videos. You really get a sense of the place that doesn't even come close to viewing it on a flat screen. I'm looking forward to when we can share these experiences on YouTube.
Turn your smartphone into a virtual reality viewer that’s simple, fun, and affordable.

+Winston Crofford and there are games too! What's so nice with 3d rendering versus videos is that you get no compression artifacts. That is so immersive!

Welcome to the new google.com/design

Much has happened in the year since we launched Google Design and introduced our material design framework at Google I/O 2014. To capture all the design work happening at Google and around the community, we’ve given google.com/design an exciting refresh — adding a host of  new guidelines and tools, as well as written and video content. The goal is to provide a new perspective on our design process and ample opportunity for cross pollination. We hope you enjoy the the new site, and we look forward to hearing your feedback right here on Google+!
At Google we say, “Focus on the user and all else will follow.” With this in mind, we seek to design experiences that inspire and enlighten our users.

Google Developers originally shared to I/O:
 
Get ready for even more material design

Google I/O 2015 kicks off tomorrow, and we’ve got an exciting lineup of design-focused content to experience both in-person and online. This year, we’re focusing on the ways we’re making it easier than ever to design and develop in material—with added assets and resources, backwards compatibility, and continuous updates to our design guidelines. We’re also celebrating some of the inspiring ways designers and developers have started to bring material design to life in their own products. Tune in at 4PM PDT on Thursday, May 28, to hear Matias Duarte’s “Material Now” session (goo.gl/gVZiIi), to get a complete overview, and keep a look out for more updates.

Principal Designer, Google Cardboard and VR
Introduction
Jon has been designing for Google since 2006. Jon was the first designer for Google Autocomplete, was the instigator for Google Instant, and led the Search UX team through three redesigns and the addition of new features such as the Knowledge Graph and voice search. Jon was the instigator of material design.

Jon is a native of Austin, Texas. Prior to design, Jon performed improv and sketch comedy on Austin's famous 6th Street. He has owned a comedy club, co-founded a comedy festival, been a late night radio DJ, performed with Amy Poehler and the Upright Citizens Brigade, won a business plan competition sponsored by whisky, and drank margaritas with Gov. Rick Perry and Bruce Sterling (not at the same time).

Jon is a founding member of The Mars Society and was responsible for performing on-site reconnaissance of the site that was ultimately selected near Hanksville, Utah for the Mars Desert Research Station.

Jon was in the courtroom the day Judge Sparks made his decision in Steve Jackson Games vs the United States Secret Service – the case that directly led to the creation of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (of which Jon is a member).

Jon has been in the path of two tornadoes, been chased or attacked by nearly a dozen different species, traveled over a thousand feet deep beneath the sea, discovered dinosaur bones, run a BBS, wrote an addendum to the Principia Discordia, starred in viral videos seen by millions, and was included in Gregory Peck's biography.

He lives in Mountain View, California with his wife Susan and son Thomas.

Fat Rice is firing on all cylinders. My wife and I went there for brunch and sat at the bar. Friendly service, hip decor, good music, excellent cocktails, and fantastic food. The radish cakes are so good. We'll be back.
