The 'Dandroids' were Android's original (but temporary) mascots Earlier this week, Android engineer Dan Morrill showed off Android's original (but temporary) mascots before the now famous green robot was signed off on.
Dubbed the "Dandroids," the ugly creatures were the original but unofficial mascots for the operating system during its development.

Before its public launch, the company was looking for a "funny" graphic to add to internal presentations and came up with the Dandroids after a few hours of Inkscape doodling.

Awww. I like them, but from a marketing

Someone told me once that theres a right and wrong, and that punishment would come to those
who dare to cross the line.
But it must not be true for jerk-offs like you.
Maybe it takes longer to catch a total asshole.
