Nexus Q Easter Egg Transforms The Device Into A Magic 8 Ball – Still Doesn’t Know Chuck Norris’ Power Level [Video]

I actually discovered this over the weekend while showing off the Nexus Q at my buddy’s house (other than it’s good looks, really, there wasn’t much to show off), but since it has been making the rounds across the Android blogs, I figured I’d post it here for those that haven’t seen it — especially since you’re more than likely to pass up a purchase on the Nexus Q.

Like the fun loving boys at Google so often do, they’ve included an “Easter egg” inside the Nexus Q that when activated (tap the black ball 8 times), transforms the device into a glowing Magic 8 Ball of sorts, answering your most sought after questions. Okay, well maybe it doesn’t answer much of anything. The Q mostly just gives you attitude, saying everything from “No” to, “I’m tired,” rarely ever giving you a straight answer. Pointless? Maybe. Fun? You’re damn right. Check out our video below for the Easter egg in action.

    Heyyyy…a brand new Nexus 7 and now a new Nexus Q? Where you gettin all this swag, Chavez? :P

    • feztheforeigner

      • bmg314

        I know it was a joke…because of the giveaway contest… ;-)

    I think you kinda miss the point Chris, it’s like an 8-Ball, so you ask it 8-Ball questions like “should I break up with my girlfriend?” not Siri/wolfram questions like “what is 7 * 57 ?”

    • RangersK

      Does Chris have one? :p

      • Chris Chavez

        He does :D

        • Steve Albright

          But for how long?

    • Chris Chavez

      Yeah, I admit, I instinctively did the “Siri thing.” Even then, she never gives a straight answer. Mostly says she’s tired (and she really sounds tired). Lol

    • feztheforeigner

      Why does everyone reference Siri when they mean Personal Assistant? Especially on an Android site…

  • Matt Gerry

    Dude, the original magic 8 ball couldn’t do multiplication either, lol. Yes or no questions was about it. Also, stay off of my lawn!

    • Chris Chavez

      I’ve never actually seen a Magic 8 Ball… only read about them in dusty old libraries O_o

      • Lactose_the_Intolerant

        Don’t know whether to upvote or downvote that…
        Off-setting penalties – the ruling on the field stands: net gain of zero :p

  • kappy79

    Haha, yeah only yes and no questions for the magic 8 ball. And why are you reading about them at dusty libraries when you have a nexus 7?

    • Chris Chavez

      Researching magic spells?

  • Schaefster809

    But that’s such an easy question…. It’s over 9000
