Link: Google on Material Design

[Google has a really thoughtful specification for the design of smart objects with which people interact][ggl]. It is mostly focused, of course, in the nature of representing virtual objects on screens, especially touch screens, but along the way it takes into consideration the fact that the virtual objects are on real screens that people hold in various ways. I take it that this is their version of Apple’s infamous HIG, *Human Interface Guidelines*, which I assume not only still exist but must have greatly expanded since I last looked at them and they only had to treat the Mac UI.
