The Jeff Koons designed Nexus Live Cases that Google began teasing yesterday are now available for purchase on the Google Store. Priced at $40, you will find three different limited edition cases, all of which are individually numbered.
Not familiar with Jeff Koons? I know nothing of him either, but Google calls him “one of the world’s greatest living artists” who is best known for his “Gazing Ball” series, where he re-creates previous masterpiece paintings and then places a large blue gazing ball in front of them. He also does public sculptures and created a special live wallpaper for these cases that is built from Koons’ favorite moments from the Swan Lake ballet.
The three cases are called Diana, Mailbox, and Bust, include the NFC button on the back like other Live Cases, feature that live wallpaper I just mentioned of the Swan Lake ballet, and will allow you to receive “exclusive digital artwork created by the artist and sent directly to your phone.”
If none of that interests you, well, how about a tutorial from Koons on how to make a balloon swan?
