If you don't mind abandoning your smart phone for a few hours, these dynamic, app-based costumes will make you the life of the party.
The concept might be cooler than the merchandise, but here's the website if you're interested.
There's been plenty of Google to go around today, thanks to their spectacular I/O Keynote this morning. Not only did they extensively cover the new Nexus 7 tablet and the Nexus Q media orb, but also snuck in a few theatrics as well. The highlight was the skydiving-filled Project Glass demonstration that you have to see to believe.
Engadget has a thorough write-up on the event, with news and specs for Android phones, Google Plus, Jelly Bean, and more, while Minipcpro has all the video links from the keynote.
Google employee and homebrew enthusiast Paul Carff has created an Android-powered beer dispenser that he calls "Betsy."
The KegDroid is shaped like Google's famous Android mascot, but with a tap on each hand and a Motorola Xoom tablet running Ice Cream Sandwich embedded in its chest.
To get a beer from Betsy, you'll have to authenticate by swiping one of Google's employee badges, which take advantage of Android's support for NFC (near-field communication).
Apart from keeping unauthorized drinkers in check, Carff's Android app also keeps track of the beer supply and its temperature, and allows users to choose from two beers in three different sizes.
Instagram, one of the most popular photo-sharing apps for iPhone, has finally made the leap to Android.
The Android app has all of the features of its iPhone cousin -- including a variety of built-in filters and photo effects -- and Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom says that "in some ways, it's better than our iOS app. It's crazy."
Instagram is available for free on Google Play, and works on phones running Android 2.2 and up.
Apple isn't the only big U.S. tech company whose retail stores are being copied by Chinese entrepreneurs. A fake Google Android store has apparently opened for business in Zhuhai, China, billing itself as a "celebrity smartphone experience" store.
Two things worth noting about the faux-Android outlet: First, Google hasn't opened any Android-branded retail stores, save an experimental "Androidland" partnership with Australian mobile provider Telstra.
And second, this ostensible Android shop has a fake Apple kiosk inside, which is guaranteed to raise the eyebrows of both iOS and Android fanboys.
Considering how quickly fake Apple stores are shut down once photos hit the web, this Android kiosk may not be around much longer.
Google has announced that it will combine the Android Market, Google Music and the Google eBookstore into a new cloud-based service called Google Play.
With the advent of Google Play, Google is ditching the "Android Market" branding altogether, and Android device owners will soon see the Market app replaced by a Google Play app, as well as Play versions of Android's existing Movies, Books and Music apps.
All purchased media and apps will be stored in the cloud and synced across all your Android devices. Play will even save your progress in movies, games and books, so you can pick where you left off when you switch to a different device.
The Google Play store has already launched, and the app will roll out "in the coming days."
