Webdriver Torso in Android L

In a nod to the recent Webdriver Torso mystery that perplexed YouTube for several months — before turning out to be a simple video quality testing endeavor — Google's hidden a rather unusual Easter egg in the new Android L developer preview.

Tap on the Android version number a bunch of times and you'll see not a the KitKat-style wrapper of Android 4.4, but that same selection of seemingly random red and blue rectangles that mystified the web earlier this year. Oh Google, you card.

Android 'L' preview's Easter egg is 'Webdriver Torso'


It looks like a really blocky Optimus Prime. Maybe it's just the colors that make me think of that. Plus the new movie coming out.
