Nyandroid Easter Egg Found Inside Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich [Video]


Gotta hand it to the boys at Google, they know how to have a good time. Take this fun little easter egg located inside of Ice Cream Sandwich. By entering a code of sorts, you can actually find a fun little secret inside of ICS that is sure to make you smile. All you have to do is go into the Settings app and repeatedly tap the Android Version number until… PRESTO. A tiny little Android stands before you, eerily similar to the Nyancat viral video circulating YouTube (and which happens to be my current ringtone).

Now, we’ve known about this for quite sometime but what we didn’t know is that after you long-press the little guy, he’ll continue to grow until you’re treated with flurry of Nyandroids soaring across the screen. I can’t tell you how awesome this was to find and it’s the little things like this, people, that let you know someone out there really enjoys their job.

Now I’m just waiting for a developer to extract this animation and convert it into a Live Wallpaper. Please, for the love of all things Google!
