Google posts video showing how the Oreo statue was created

When Google announces a new flavor of Android, the statue that represents the latest version often receives almost as much attention as the OS update itself, and Android 8.0 Oreo is no different. With that in mind, Google has posted a behind-the-scenes video showing just how the Oreo statue was designed and made.

Besides the obvious tie-in with the biscuit that forms a shield, the Oreo statue has taken on superhero qualities with the addition of a cape. As you may have suspected, the Oreo statue was designed in an office environment where it was tested to make sure that its motorized capabilities worked as planned. The construction of the components involved using mills, drills, soldering irons, spray guns and a veritable host of other design and power tools, and no doubt a ton of Oreo biscuits as well for research purposes, of course.

Once assembled and tested, the statue was then taken apart so it could be transported to its final location where it was unveiled to the tech world on Monday night. What are your thoughts on the statue? Is Android 8.0 heroic enough to warrant a superhero statue? Let us know in the comments below.
