Google and Skrillex Launch Cases to Show Fans our Planet
If you’re a fan of space or electronic music and you’re looking for a new case for your phone, then check this out. Google and Skrillex are teaming up to bring some pretty cool science to your phone. Today Google announced that Skrillex has launched a satellite named Nanou into the stratosphere. Nanou has been tasked with taking photos of the Earth from high in the sky. Not only are Google and Skrillex letting you take a look at those pictures, but they’re also bringing them to your smartphone in the form of live wallpaper.
Google will be offering special edition cases that extend from your phone to your screen. Once you download the Live wallpaper app, your phone’s screen will change throughout the day to feature some of the awesome pictures taken by Nanou. When the sun goes down your live wall paper will show you constellations based on your phone’s location. The case also comes with a customizable button that you can use to open up your camera, an app or even to check out Skrillex’s music. Buying the case will also get you an early look at some of Skrillex’s favorite artists on OWSLA. Once Nanou is done photographing the pale blue dot, one super lucky fan will win the autographed satellite.
The cases start at $40 and are available on the Google Store. You’ll need to have either a Nexus 6, Nexus 5, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy S6, or Samsung Galaxy Note 4. They’re available starting today until the end of June. Google also posted a short documentary video of Skrillex talking about his fascination with space. You can watch the video here.
