Video: Giant Nexus Q robot stalks the halls of Google I/O

Last year it was an oversized Android-powered labyrinth, and this year the centerpiece of the Google I/O second-floor display was a giant robotic Google Nexus Q. Attached to a robot arm and adorned with glowing, rhythmic LEDs, the 'bot played music to attendees passing through I/O.

Announced yesterday, the Nexus Q is a miniature Android-powered computer and media center for your living room. It's due out in July, and I/O attendees were given preview units yesterday. We'll be bringing you more on Google's latest foray into home entertainment over the next day, but for now you can find footage of its oversized robotic cousin after the break.

  • That's not going to fit in my living room...
  • For some reason that kinda reminds me of GLaDOS from Portal. The cake is a LIE!!
  • It's like they decapitated Marvin the android and painted him black.
  • For some reason I feel compelled to tell it EVERYTHING I know...
  • Don't worry, the pricetag on the Q is scary enough without any help from a giant, stalking robot.
