Google Home Max & Google Home Mini

Google Home Max & Google Home Mini are the next iterations of the Google Home line, completing the full-home experience. Google’s vision is to build simple solutions that work in the background, helping when users need it and staying out of the way when they don’t. The home is a special, intimate place, and people are particularly selective about what they welcome into it. Google Home Max was designed entirely with that in mind, appropriately blending in just the right amount. The front face of the device is a full flood of fabric with a discreet visual UI. With far-field voice control, Max can hear users across the room, even while music is playing. Google wanted Mini to deliver a premium product experience at a very low price point. Mini brings the Assistant to every room, giving answers from Google and the ability to check calendars and listen to podcasts.

Google Pixelbook & Pixelbook Pen

The Google Pixelbook is the thinnest laptop that can rotate upon itself to become a tablet. The product is not compromised in usability in either mode, has class-leading Wi-Fi reception and demonstrates a build quality unmatched by the competition. Combined with the stability, reliability and always updated Chrome OS operating system, it provides a professional-level product that stretches the boundaries for the platform. The goal of Pixelbook was to make the thinnest 360-degree laptop without compromising usability in either laptop or tablet mode. Google overcame the challenges of reconfiguring computer hardware, creating a 360-degree hinge and keeping the structure light but also rigid—all with just a 10.3-millimeter thickness. The Pixelbook Pen provides a more natural drawing and handwriting interaction, including a button to directly access the Google Assistant that enables the user to search by circling content.

Light L16

The Light L16 is the world’s first multi-aperture computational camera. It combines an ergonomically refined case, breakthrough optics and the most advanced imaging engine ever created to bring DSLR image quality to a pocket-size form factor. Sixteen image sensors span wide angle, mid and telephoto ranges. There are no extra lenses to carry or change. Based on focal distance, each shutter click captures up to 10 images, which are then fused into a high-resolution photo that can be refocused and adjusted with the Light editing software. Each shot yields infinite photographic outcomes. The design objective was to integrate Light’s groundbreaking optics and image processing technology into a refined easy-to-use camera to satisfy the most discerning photography enthusiasts among us. Every facet of the physical interaction and technology integration demanded the utmost care to ensure an authentic, pleasing camera experience.
