The snazzy Google light bar from the Chromebook Pixel and Pixel C may be coming back
The distinctive blue, red, yellow, and green light bar on the Google-branded Chromebook Pixel laptop and Pixel C tablet was a delightful bit of subtle branding, and it’s a shame we haven’t seen it on subsequent models like the Pixelbook. But according to a snippet of code spotted in the Chrome repository, it might be coming back on a future Chromebook machine from Lenovo.
Chrome Unboxed spotted the code controlling the light bar’s integrated battery meter and other animations in the open source Chromium repository, committed for a device with the codename “Lindar.”
