Google Employees Get All The Best Toys: The R/C Android You Can’t Have

If you want to experience Google’s Project Glass, not only will you have to have been among the developers attending the company’s Google I/O event this year, but shell out $1500 for the privilege of being what’s essentially a beta tester. That, or you could just be a Google employee yourself, get early access to the technology, and actually get paid to play with it. Though it’s no doubt some very challenging work, there are plenty of times when we find ourselves envious of Google personnel and all the cool stuff they have access to. The latest Google exclusive is being put together by Bladez Toyz, and its remote control Android will be available only to Google staff.

Bladez makes other similar models, with inflatable characters attached to an R/C base, but supposedly only Google employees will be able to pick up a model featuring Andy the Android. The rest of us will have some Star Wars characters to choose between, but how badly do we wish we had a little Android bumping the office? The Bladez system supports controlling up to three of these guys simultaneously, though we haven’t heard of anything cool like the ability to control them over WiFi with our phones themselves.

Google folk will be able to pick one of these up later this year for around $65.
