Google Nexus Q has hidden Magic 8-Ball powers

The Big G has bestowed mythical powers upon its latest spherical media streaming device

Google has hidden an Easter egg within the bowels of its new Nexus Q media streamer which transforms the spherical device into a Magic 8-Ball.

Similar to Android Ice Cream Sandwich's and Jelly Bean's hidden animations, tapping repeatedly on the Nexus Q's image with reveal a Magic 8-Ball mode in which Google's black sphere will answer all of your burning questions.

Don't expect Siri or Google Now levels of accuracy however. True to its ancestor, the Magic 8-Ball mode's responses are traditionally vague, with mainly 'Yes' and 'No' answers forming the majority of decisions.

Still, if you fancy impressing your friends next time they're round for a movie, you'll know just what to do.
