May 2015 Material Design Spec Update

Today’s a big day for design here at Google—along with the new google.com/design, we’ve got a lot more tools and content to share.

For starters, we’re updating the material design guidelines today (google.com/design/spec), with a focus on guidance for larger screens. We heard loud and clear from designers across the community that the guidelines for tablet and desktop sizes left a lot of open questions, so we’re providing additional recommendations for these sizes with this update. But that’s not all—the list of updates includes:

Adaptive UI: a new section on layout and navigation for large screens.

Navigation: a new section with suggestions for different levels of navigation.

FAB expansion: additional examples of FAB expansion animations.

Launch screens: a new section on displaying app branding and placeholder content when launching an app.

Empty states: a new section on treatment for empty collections and other empty states.

For the full breakdown of what’s been added and updated, check out the What’s New section in the spec:

Looks nice. Though I wonder if they have a 'Nexus' version of this where you actually get updates or if there is a better update mechanism.
For years, the center consoles of cars have been dominated by "infotainment" systems, which are designed to control everything from music, to navigation, to climate systems. Though they’ve gotten...

I can almost imagine someone making a science fiction movie where we find a similar vault left over by an ancient civilization that didn't survive long enough to use it. And it has a dark secret waiting to be released :-)

Self-healing concrete.
Remember how cool we all thought the original T-1000 was when it would heal itself after getting shot thanks to its liquid metal alloy? Well, some scientists have created something that’s almost as cool: “Bioconcrete” that can heal itself with the help of some very special bacteria. FROM EARLIER: Let’s get real – there’s no reason to hate Microsoft anymore CNN reports that Henk Jonkers, a microbiology professor at the Delft University of Technolo...

I've always believed that governments shouldn't be in the business of protecting citizens from themselves. Ending the "War on Drugs" and democratizing production will kill the underground drug industry and the unsavory characters that thrive on it. 
A fermentation process that produces heroin’s raw ingredient has stirred debate over whether the drug trafficking trade could benefit more than the pharmaceutical industry.

Hope they do. This is the first time I've even heard of Avago, so I don't know how open they are.

Go 1.5 looks amazing.
The State of the State of Go. I gave a similar talk at FOSDEM in February 2015. talks.golang.org/2015/state-of-go.slide. This talk builds on that talk. Go 1.5. Release schedule. Go 1.5 is scheduled for release in August 2015. The major work is done. We are now in the "feature freeze" period.

Under the desert sun of New Mexico, scientists have engineered ancient bacteria to produce carbon-neutral ethanol using just the sun, waste carbon dioxide and non-potable water. The fuel that results could one day be cheaper than oil. Bloomberg's Ramy Inocencio reports from outside the oil town of Hobbs. (Source: Bloomberg)

"Researchers at Tel Aviv's Sackler School of Medicine came up with a clever idea: why not create a virus that gives bacteria something that's useful to them, but gets rid of antibiotic resistance at the same time? Under normal growth circumstances, the bacteria would readily pick up the virus, because it's useful. But, when faced with an antibiotic assault, they'd be helpless to resist it."
CRISPR/Cas system isn't just for engineering human genomes.
