Google outs Nexus Q - a gleaming ball that streams media around your house
There are of lots of different ways people interact socially, and some have become deprecated over time,” Britt says. “But I’m not sure if that’s because they’re less interesting or less valuable, or because new modes of communication and entertainment have made people forget about the value associated with them. Nexus Q is revival of something that used to be very commonplace, but it’s something humans still react very positively to.

This is waaay cool. I will wait a few months for the price to come down a bit, though... Now, THAT is innovation.

Yeah, I'll wait for the price drop as well

If it hooks into google TV, Netflix, and the rest to make it a bonifide advanced media center then it might be something to look out for. As a stylish google play device... not so much. My phone/tablet already does that.
on a side note, it looks like a stylized version of those octopus enemies from the matrix revolutions :)

The minute this comes out I am so there. I use Skifta, all the time at my place or my brothers place & it works insanely well. I love that this has NFC interaction because I can think of a million things to do. I can set it up like a NFC tag & just move my phone over it & start a movie or a party mix or anything.
Google X is the sh*t. This is such a great idea. I want one now!

This is something "NEW." Will wait for around six months after hooking up with this.

Price is high, but it looks cool. As in, how it looks like a magic 8 ball. Media players are popular. I might try this. But I want to try it in person though.
