Secret “Rocket Launcher” Discovered in Ice Cream Sandwich

YouTube Preview Image

Oh that Android Team, such a creative bunch. The Nyan Android is not the only Easter egg tucked away in Ice Cream Sandwich. No sir, a space-inspired “Rocket Launcher” was also included, but can only be found by looking through the available activities on the phone. What I mean by that, is you have to use a 3rd party app like Any Cut or LauncherPro that can turn activities into shortcuts. Once you do, the video above can be achieved.

Tap once to slow the rocket ship, tap an icon to launch it.

      Not sure if you missed the memo, but recently, the internet has been expanded to the whole world, not just the little bubble you live in.  If you don’t like it, don’t read it.

      They are teasing us so we fill up the comments section. This is one way they make money. Advertiser will want space here if they see how many people visit this site and the comments section. They do this in order to make money….and we all fall for it. Well most of us use Ad Blocker anyways I guess.

    LauncherPro is already on ICS? Sweet! My favorite Launcher!

    • Anonymous

      It works on ICS but it works exactly like it does on 2.3 and lower. It’s not really optimized for ICS. I’m using Android’s stock launcher until that changes.

    I tried it on the my Nexus S running Drew Garen’s ICS 4.0 Beta 1 and it works. Its nice to have as a screen saver while your phone is resting on your work desk and not in use but that’s about it.

  • Gs2

    This phone is so lame quadrent score barley 2,000 slow ass animation transitions like in kellex own video he turned phone and 2 seconds later screen rotated lol what a piece of crap my gs2 kills this lame phone in every aspect so all you fan boys like kellex stop buying the hype and the Verizon one isn’t even a pure Google experice cause it has Verizon apps and says Verizon instead of google like every real nexus never has carrier branding lol you suck ad

    • Tony Allen

      I’ll keep that in mind this time next year when your ICS update is pushing out xD

      ….,,  ,.   , …,.

      Donated some punctuation to your “sentence.” lol

      That said, I would rather have ICS on the Rezound with root.  But alas, I will likely have to settle for this if I want fully open.

    • Mctypethings_Gay_lover

      It’s becuase the GPU is over 4 years old. Oh, the bumped the clock speed up to fool you into thinking it’s high performance, it’s not.

  • ShootAngelsFace77xs

    Still no word from VZW and it’s only a week away from the rumor Kellex’s been pimping. 

    You can’t stop me!!

  • djvick

    How come you get to play with the Nexus! I want to play too!

  • http://iamandroid.co/profile/rocktoonz Rocktoonz

    can’t wait for someone to port this out as an app launcher for other devices lol

  • Kierra

    This is really cool. 

    But I cant help but wonder if it was on another phone would ppl be asking ” How can I turn this useless animation OFF?”

  • http://www.facebook.com/rangleskov Ryan Rangel

    lame?  yes.

  • Clevelandrocks

    At least we know the phone exists and people are enjoying themselves using it. I’m going out on a limb to say this phone will be out sometime.

    Has the potential to being a great screensaver, is this a possible glimpse that we might see screensavers on Android?

      It is probably somewhere in the phone but people would have to find it.

  • http://twitter.com/rkein87 Rob Kein

    Spending more time on this than allowing a volume bug to ship…good job Google, that 20% time is very effective.

        whether or not the update is out, this is just useless fluff until the phone is released with no problems

        • Anonymous

          I guess. I think we’re all just angry that Verizon is delaying the sh*t out of this phone. It probably won’t get as much marketing as their DROID devices, so why not just release it? Casual owners won’t care about 4.0 anyways. Might as well release it for the ones who are knowledgable about the strengths of the device.

    • http://twitter.com/P1X3LPU5H3R CreativeOVERDOSE

      I very much doubt that they “wasted” time on this in favor of less bug testing. Last I checked the vol bug was getting fixed, and isn’t present in the US version since Verizon is CDMA not 2xGSM. What’s that saying again? It’s better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

    I wouldn’t know… my Nexus is still sitting in a box in a warehouse somewhere!

    • richard melcher

      I keep thinking the same thing; I have a mental picture of my phone sitting in the middle of a pallet surrounded by dozens of other Galaxy Nexus’s in some Indiana Jones warehouse. 

      • http://twitter.com/Sandelb Kent Blackwell

        When Verizon was asked for comment on the delays to the Nexus, they replied there were “top men” working on the device. When pressed for further details on the identities of the indivuduals, they only responded again with, “Top. Men.”

        • EC8CH

          They don’t know what they’ve got there.
