Android baby's room

It's not often that I'm at a loss for words. But this is just so awesome I'm going to let it stand on its own merits. Congrats to Android Forums member scoty024 for being quite the artiste, and to his wife for being so ... forgiving. Even I couldn't get away with doing this. Pretty sure you just signed up for the first 1,000 diaper changes, dude. (The good news: That's only a two-week sentence.)

Dive on into the forums at the link below and give scoty024 a major high five for pulling this off.

(PS: Hey, Marlin: If you see this in, oh, say 15 years or so, give your dad a break. He was cool, once. :p )

Android is officially a hosehold name! Now if he can get his wife to agree to the name Android.....

How bout lloyd!?

trejrco says:

Android ... Andy, for short.
Maybe "Anne Droid" for a girl?

(A harder sell - &roid (hilarity ensues, http://xkcd.com/327/ ))

This guy is my hero and he's doing it right. Lol..

tim242 says:

The kid will be more concerned with his name...

JasonPurp says:

This is the point where I think it becomes a little bit too much.

shoman24v says:

I would not show this off.

Droidus says:

This is sad on so many levels

delta7 says:

yep, it's a bit excessive....

It's just a phone, sometimes being away from cyberspace actually helps the mind.

trejrco says:

Well, to pick nits - it is the operating system used on the phones (and tablets, TVs, etc.).

And, while I am biased, I think this is fine - by the time the kid is old enough to know/care it (the wall, not the kid) will probably be repainted anyway, at this age its for the parents :).

Hey, according to the Brand Guidelines, the Android custom typeface may not be used! All joking aside, this is pretty neat.

This is just a guy having a little fun before his New born comes.. Sooooo why doesn't everyone that is breaking ball just chill out.. Its all in good fun.. I am sure he isn't naming his kid Android & even more sure his wife wouldn't let that happen.. So again this is all in good fun.. If this makes Scotty happy then so be it.. I think its pretty damn funny..

Sorry didn't realize the kids name is Marlin.. Cool name bro.. Different which is great.. Not a bob or dan or bill.. Cool names make cool kids.. kick ass......

I think he stole the show with that... Great job! eff the hatters! They must be ihomo's fan boys

Awesome, already off to a great start!

eahinrichsen says:

What, they couldn't name the kid Lloyd? :)

scoty024 says:

LOL, I honestly have to admit that I was toying around with the idea for a couple minutes, but my wife and I were set on family names and my Grandfather (Marlin) was a pillar in my life, so we went with that.

However, I did use the light version of the AC official Lloyd wallpaper to select the exact green and blue for the walls (via ColorSnap by Sherwin Williams on my Evo3D).

scoty024 says:

I figured he's not going to have his own established opinions, likes, and stances until he's about 2 years old. That means there is no harm in my having some fun with a kid friendly and colorful mascot until he's old enough to say "Daddy, I really like The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" or something.

Thanks for all the positive feedback everyone. And thanks to you Phil for finding this and putting it up here!

Very Nice Scot. Sweet artwork and congrats on little Marlin. Nice font as well.

area223 says:

Why do people have to be so negative about it? The Android guy is cute and the rooms is cute!

CeluGeek says:

Awesome job!

Hand_O_Death says:

And I thought only iPhone users were "Creative".

David_in_Fla says:

Obviously Scoty024 is NOT a barista!

757boy says:

...damn.

This is how you raise a kid to be a giant nerd that gets picked on constantly at school, you mean?

zhirow says:

Says the giant nerd reading about this on androidcentral, your glass house must be made of gorillaglass...

Michaeljm says:

Haha that's awesome. +1 for having a little fun Scoty

I don't understand the negative comments; what boy doesn't love robots?

dcreed says:

Great. Now Google owns all rights to Marlin.

Zenstrive says:

Google would probaby call Android v8.0 Marlin :)

XavierMatt says:

I think its awesome.

Synycalwon says:

Ha, that's way cool! Congrats!

The following is NOT how you raise a kid right: give them names like: Crimson Tyde, Bear Bryant, or Ally Bama. (ala Harvey Updyke)

gfdos.sys says:

just noticed that if you look at Marlin in the mirror, its NilRam... which is the excuse Samsung was using not to put ICS on the original Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab....
