Quantum Paper is the overarching name for a new, unified design framework intended to make experiences consistent across all platforms. According to information available to us, it represents Google's effort to both create (with Google apps) and encourage consistent, beautiful design that delights across all platforms. Quantum Paper is a hugely ambitious project, looking to unify and codify paradigms for visual, motion, and interaction design across all platforms, including web, Android, and iOS.

Google I/O is going to be very, very interesting.

"...encourage consistent, beautiful design that delights across all platforms."

Such UX wankery. Does nobody work on actual usability anymore? As in the engineering practice that uses research from psychology, biology, anthropology etc. to create easy to use efficient interfaces for people to actually to DO something other than d**** around in facebook.

Considering Google's track record with Android, I'll be surprised if they manage to stick with their version of Metro longer than six months before coming up with a new place to put the menu button. Is been a hardware button on right and left side below the screen and a software button on the right and now left top corner of the screen.

HCI hasn't been a real thing now for over a decade. I figure the few people who were working in HCI have gone off to help websites "increase their click-thru rates".
