The financial challenges Americans are facing today are vastly different then the challenges of past generations. Disappearing pensions, skyrocketing costs of tuition and the rise of the gig economy have put the future of millions of people in unchartered waters. To learn more about these new challenges we set out across the country to meet as many people as possible, from all different walks of life, in an initiative called, The State of Us.

On June 30th 2015, an extra second was added to the World Clock. A Leap Second. From LOLs to karate kicks, people all over the world captured this moment in countless different ways on their Android phones.
Paint Party was a physical installation debuted at Google I/O that harnessed the power of Android to control a giant, custom-built, paint-flinging robot so that all 7,000 attendees could create art together. It demonstrated Android’s ability to push the limits of the conference's theme, “Input/Output.” Anyone could control the robot with an Android phone to flick paint on the massive canvas (a 4x4 meter rotating cube). The robot mimicked every movement in real time. Java was used to develop the control app, along with native Android APIs, which fed inputs from touch, the gyroscope and the accelerometer into the robot (brought to life by Rhino 3D and the Kuka PRC plug-in). Attendees used over 100 gallons of paint, spun the cube over 10,000 times, made 3,000-plus flings and painted 60 panels that were displayed as art across the event space.
