Google is giving out Pixel holiday sweaters at their NYC pop-up

Google is creating custom holiday sweaters for anyone that shows up to their New York City popup with a Pixel or Pixel XL.

Winter is coming here. While we walk aimlessly about the streets being warmed by our hot cocoa and layers and layers of clothing, there are some that have long since missed the welcoming heat we take for granted. It used to be the case that smartphones would heat themselves up quite a bit after the slightest bit of use, but these days selfish advances in cooling technology have caused our smartphones to keep cool under most conditions. While this might seem jolly and fine for us as users, the brisk winter nights can maker our devices wish for the coming of the summer season.

Google has heard the call of our personal assistants, and has decided to take advantage of its advanced 3D printing technologies to provide these lowly devices with cute little holiday sweaters.

Joking aside, if you stop by a Google pop-up shop in New York City within the next week, you can pick up a free mini sweater for your Pixel device. All you have to do is show the attendants that you have a Pixel, and they will use their 3D yarn printer to make you a custom cover for your Pixel or Pixel XL. The sweaters come in a variety of colors, and have a little ‘G’ logo being covered in snowfall. If you’re one of the first 150 to grab one today, the company will also give you a full sized sweater to rock along with your device.

If you happen to miss the event or don’t live anywhere near New York City, you can also pick up a holiday sweater edition Google Live Case, which will give you quite a bit more protection as it is. In addition, you can get a $15 discount on these cases if you use the promo code HOLIDAYLIVECASE. Find them here.

While the sweater obviously isn’t going to be very protective for your phone, it’s still a nice gesture from the company. For those who want to get a free cover, head over to the popup and let us know what you get.

The company is currently showing off a number of their creations on their Snapchat story (@Google), so head over there if you want to see how these are being made. Looking to pick one up?
