If you are a fan of dubstep, chances are very good that you are familiar with Sonny Moore, better known by his stage name – Skrillex. He has recently teamed with Google to create a series of Skrillex Live Cases for select Android phones. If you’ve got a Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy S6, or Samsung Note 4 and can’t get enough of the wub wub, keep reading to learn more about what these cases can do.
Skrillex has designed three unique cases with designs based around his love of space. Each case will obviously protect your phone but there’s more to it than that. Connecting via NFC, each case includes an exclusive live wallpaper. The NFC connection also acts as a programmable button which can be used for anything from launching apps or games to loading up the Skrillex website if you so choose.
The live wallpaper updates daily with satellite photographs of Earth, and each night switches to Constellation mode, where Constellations will appear based on your location and what stars are around you.
In conjunction with the launch of these live cases, Skrillex has also launched an actual satellite to assist with the imagery. This custom autographed balloon-based satellite (named Nanou) will be given away after it has completed its mission. Google has suggested that you follow @Android on Twitter if you’re interested in more details.
If that weren’t enough, case owners will also get early access to a Skrillex album on Google Play, and receive instant Skrillex updates directly on their phones.
These cases start at $40 and can be purchased at the source link below. If Skrillex isn’t your thing, don’t worry. This is only the first entry in Google’s Editions, limited-edition cases created in conjunction with other musicians and artists.
