    Basically, video was about getting Google services to look the same across platforms.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 4:23:33 PM
    This sounds like the kind of technology Tactus has been showing us in the path, with depth.

    Lot of spin coming from Duarte. "Understanding the relationships between objects and depth."

    In L preview, devs will be able to define elevation value, he says.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 4:24:25 PM
    Ahh, no tactility at all, it's just virtual depth, showing light sources and etc. No actual buttons. Shame, was hoping for an actual Tactus implementation.

    "Your content is the focus," says Duarte.

    All framework elements can be colored ... new support library called Palette to extract colors from images.

    Duarte is talking about defining grids and other design tools that will help apps to move more gracefully across platforms. That's always a huge problem on Android, as we've seen from many apps having less than ideal versions on tablets.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 4:25:27 PM
    You wanted a developer conference, you got one. Deep in the design woods from the developer perspective, and the crowd seems to be enjoying it.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 4:25:37 PM
    Roboto also getting updated and optimized "for your watch" he says...and other platforms.

    He's showing off a series of new icons and progress indicators too, much more charming and warm. They look great!
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 4:26:38 PM
    "Developers will be able to create seamless animation between activities and apps," he says.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 4:26:44 PM
    We're going to get a look at this now.

    We're watching the changes from Gmail today to Gmail of tomorrow: bolder colors, grids in dev used to create alignment without actual lines in the finished product.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 4:27:51 PM
    Polymer gets applause.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 4:27:52 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 4:28:06 PM
    Polymer is for bringing app-like design to the Web.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 4:28:12 PM
    Wow, Google's now extending its developer support for Polymer to the Web as well, that should make for easy porting and extensions online for devs.

    Unified set of style guidelines "for every screen," Duarte says.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 4:28:45 PM
    The specs will be up at google.com/design
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 4:28:49 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 4:29:04 PM
    Google has already had design guidelines, of course, so new guidelines won't necessarily rock the boat. But, what we've just seen certainly looks clean and modern. Looking forward to it.
