We've covered TeeFury's awesome Android offerings in the past, and today the online purveyor of t-shirts is back with a design inspired by vintage science fiction – The Android Attack by Adams Pinto. The shirt features our favorite green robot as a giant robot monster leaving the wreckage of a city in his wake and, for good measure, stomping on a defenseless piece of fruit I think we'll all recognize.
Ok, so maybe the "these aren't the Droids you're looking for" joke is a little 2009, but that doesn't make this Android being carried off by Jawas any less adorable. If you're looking for a sweet deal on a shirt, but missed out on last week's Tanga deal, you can grab this shirt from TeeFury right now. The $10 price tag only lasts for another eight hours, so get a move on.
Creating an aesthetically pleasing home screen for your phone or tablet has become an art in itself, and an entire ecosystem packed with widgets, themes, wallpapers, launchers, and custom ROMs has built up to support it. Sometimes, it can be tough to find a winning combination of elements to create a beautiful and enduring home screen that provides both form and function.
For this reason, we have decided to open up a monthly call for gorgeous, well-decorated home screens of all shapes and sizes.
So when Malc Foy emailed us a tip about a group of like-minded artists working on a series of mashup Android characters, we had to check it out.
It's called Droidarmy and so far contains over 20 designs, about a third of which I suddenly want to wear. Here they all are:
Here are some of my favorites:
Droidberg - though I already own this one.
If there is one thing I love buying, it's Android t-shirts (in fact, our own apparel store has close to 30 designs alone, most of which I own). The number of them in my closet goes well into double digits, and even though it is going to literally explode soon, I can't idly sit around and ignore the awesomeness that showed up at RIPT Apparel today - "Famous Androids."
The daily t-shirt deal shows a unique design every day, costs $10, and then goes away forever, unless the author lists it elsewhere.
If you still haven't picked up one of the awesome Android shirts that we added to our apparel store this month, here is your chance at ordering them with the largest discount to date: 25% off orders over $40. Just use coupon codes CYBER2010 (US) or CADCYBER2010 (Canada), and the discount will be applied to the total value of your cart. Customers outside the US and Canada, unfortunately, are not eligible.
About a month and a half ago, we announced our biggest contest yet - your creativity expressed as an official Android Police t-shirt design in exchange for an Android phone, courtesy of Samsung.
The contest went on for about 3 weeks and the results exceeded my wildest expectations. Countless submissions later, many sleepless nights of doing final edits, emailing back and forth with the authors, and organizing the apparel store, I had narrowed down the submissions to...
We'll keep this short and sweet - Android Police needs an official shirt design. However, none of us are of the artistic caliber necessary for such an endeavor (if you need any proof of that, check out the t-shirt I was sporting at Google I/O this year. Ironed on, baby!). This is where you, the super-talented-Photoshop/Illustrator-wizard, come in.
Yesterday was day 0 of the Google I/O conference. During this day, presenting developers set up their demo stations, known here as sandboxes, register, check in, and last but not least - receive shwag, also known as "free crap".
