This is insane. Google. You've gone too far this time. Look, the Nexus Q was a cool idea. Social streaming? Yeah, I love it! Hooking it up to the Nexus 7? Great! Making it giant, placing it in the center of the I/O conference and giving it access to the deadly neurotoxin? MAYBE NOT YOUR BEST MOVE.

In case you weren't already feeling left out of all the fun I/O goodness, what with the free Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7, and Nexus Qs Google is giving out, Artem and David—who are currently at Google I/O having all the fun—sent back this video of a gigantic, glowing Nexus Q, controlled by a Nexus 7 and what can only be described as a control orb. Just in case the future wasn't weird enough for you.

      People are saying that, at the end of Google I/O, there will be cake.

    Darth should have used his lasers for something sexy like this instead...

    After Google I/O, I hope that Google will continue to showcase this so people can either view or try it!!!  (It would be a shame to take it down.)  It's just to beautiful and mesmerizing...I'm hooked!

    I actually found an Easter Egg that makes this seem even more like GLaDOS/SkyNET/Robot Uprising:  https://plus.google.com/114677980531215413200/posts/iBonEsZHsLT
