It's your cloud, in your living room, from Google. We've been hearing about a Google branded home entertainment product for a while now, an today on stage Google showed us the future -- the Nexus Q. Imagine a sexy black sphere, controlled via NFC from your Android phone or tablet, that sends out audio and video from the cloud to your existing television and stereo equipment. Since it's not streaming from your phone, that means your friends can get in on the fun and stream his or her cloud through the Nexus Q. It really is the first social streaming media device.
The hackable Nexus Q (it has the same SoC as the Galaxy Nexus and USB in/out) will be available for $299 from Google Play, starting in the US. Pre-orders stars today and the units ship in July. Check out the video after the break!
