“Capturing the possibilities of the human hand was one of my passions. How can we take this incredible capability, the finesse of human actions, the finesse of using our hands, but apply it to the virtual world?”
- +Ivan Poupyrev, Project Soli founder, Google ATAP

+Google ATAP’s Project Soli is developing a new interaction sensor that uses radar technology to track sub-millimeter motions of the human hand at high speed and accuracy, allowing one to interact with wearables, the Internet of Things, and other computing devices via gesture recognition. It fits onto a chip, can be produced at scale and built into small devices and everyday objects. Check out the video below to learn more.

Google has really stepped up their design game in the past few years
Thanks +Cliff Kuang for helping tell our stories!
Google's transformation into a company that creates beautiful software is the story of how tech itself has evolved in the mobile era.

While on a recent drive down the Oregon Coast on Highway 101 I saw a dirt road heading down to a nice beach, I decided to turn off the highway and made my way down the road where I found a good spot to park then did a short walk down to the ocean. Right before I made it to the shoreline I snapped this photograph of the rugged shoreline that stood before me, I could not have time this trip any better for having blue sky's and warm temps and the best part no crowds to be found for miles in either direction!

"Trinidad Gold"

This was taken at College Cove in Trinidad, California. I've been to some pretty spectacular beaches on the California coast and this one knocked my socks off. I seriously had goose bumps during the photography session. It's places like this that give me that life boost that in turn gives perspective and gratitude to be alive.

Lake Tahoe in my opinion is one of the most beautiful lakes in the United States.This Lake is the largest alpine lake in North America: 22 miles long, 12 miles wide, with 72 miles of shoreline and an amazing water clarity of about 70 feet. It’s a favorite spot for water fun — from boating to fishing to swimming — and sightseeing. Really a beautiful gem in the Sierra Nevada.

Dunedin, the oldest city in New Zealand, is a region of fascinating landscapes and rich cultural history. Picturesque hills, remote beaches, beautiful harbor, numerous wildlife hotspots including the world’s rarest penguin colonies and best-preserved Victorian and Edwardian architecture makes it a unique travel destination.

Blue hour in “sete cidades” - Azores, Portugal 
by Paulo Pereira

The Azores islands, an autonomous region of Portugal, form an archipelago in the mid-Atlantic and are characterized by dramatic landscapes, fishing villages, green pastures and hedgerows of blue hydrangeas. Green, volcanic and remote, the islands were first settled in the 15th century and are popular for hiking, whale-watching, blue marlin fishing, surfing and diving.

Had a very bonding meal with a friend. We basically ate from one big plate- this is how they advice you to eat there. Apparently it is how is done in Ethiopia. The food was good.
