Thesis Statement 
Google Environment increases the personal experience at home or in any living space by allowing the user to manipulate the location and surroundings. This prompts the user to be anywhere in the world from a primary location. This concepts successfully creates Idyllic spaces for the user by increasing visual aspects and overall emotional state or reaction of the space using virtual windows and depending factors. 

Original home page concept for viewing Google Environment : UI/UX matches 2015 Google Page Layout (2015)

Research & Studies

Effects from environment 
To have a space that was no longer controlled by time nor weather or conditions but buy the user. Google Environment allows the user to manipulate their environment to their liking this allows the environment to become timeless. The home environment or environment period plays a major role on a person's mood which mainly sculpts out a persons day. 
Weather can have an effect on you mentally and physically! 
Higher temperatures can bring a depressed person up. Denissen et al. (2008) found that weather’s daily influence has more of an impact on a person’s negative mood, rather than helping one’s positive mood. Higher temperatures raise a person with a low mood up, while things like wind or not enough sun made a low person feel even lower. 

A) The objective is to eliminate this aspect and give the user full control over their environment.
B) (SAD) Seasonal Affective Disorder : A mood disorder characterized by depression that occurs at the same time every year.
When are you most creative? 
Studies indicate that most individuals have a creative peak during the course of a day. During this peak time the individual is completely focused and more creative with high energy levels. This effect comes from a meta physical state that your mind sets itself to and makes you feel more comfortable to work in a positive way. 

A) Create an environment that is completely relaxing and effective in helping keep that creative peak for longer than the average 2-4 hrs.

Augmented Reality 
Augmented reality (AR) is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality, in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. As a result, the technology functions by enhancing one’s current perception of reality. By contrast, virtual reality replaces the real world with a simulated one. Augmentation is conventionally in real-time and in semantic context with environmental elements, such as sports scores on TV during a match. With the help of advanced AR technology (e.g. adding computer vision and object recognition) the information about the surrounding real world of the user becomes interactive and digitally manipulable. Information about the environment and its objects is overlaid on the real world. This information can be virtual or real, e.g. seeing other real sensed or measured information such as electromagnetic radio waves overlaid in exact alignment with where they actually are in space 

A) By creating a separate layer of Glass “lens” that is before the transparent screen allow the viewer to see this type of reality in dept. This cancels out the need for the user to use glasses to see this type of reality.

B) Technology - OLED Transparent Screens organic light-emitting diode (OLED) is a light-emitting diode
