Last month Google introduced Live Cases for their Nexus handset lineup. For those unfamiliar, these are cases that are completely customizable in which users can head on over to Google’s website, select a photo or pick a location on a map, and use that design as their case. This will ultimately result in cases that are completely unique to the user.


Pretty cool, right? However if you don’t fancy yourself an artist or designer, you might be interested to learn that Google has teamed up with artist Jeff Koons to introduce new limited edition Live Cases in which there will be three designs to be chosen from, all of which will be compatible with the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P.

According to Google, “From balloon animals to classic figures, Koons’ art often challenges the perception of scale, weight and even the laws of physics. The Jeff Koons Live Case features three sculptures inspired by his “Gazing Ball” series. Each Jeff Koons Live Case is individually numbered and available for a limited time for Nexus 5X and 6P in the U.S.”

Also just like other Live Cases from Google, the Jeff Koons cases will also come with live wallpapers in which double tapping the screen will see the dancers spring into action. The cases will be priced at $40 each and will be available via the Google Store.
