It also features a skateboarder using the phone as an accelerometer to score his tricks, and the N8 serving as the face for a helicopter (random). One of the more practical mods featured at the end of the commercial is a hamster-powered charger (you'd need a very fit hamster for a full charge).
The handset, available in the US by the end of September, will be the first to run the new Symbian^3 platform. Some of its most exciting features include 16GB of internal memory, 720p video capture, HDMI output, and a 12 megapixel camera from Carl Zeiss.
