It’s Google’s Street View like you’ve never seen before.

Heavily rooted in the culture and reality of Ōdate City, Japan are Akita dogs. The snowy, mountainous area, home to the famous Akita dog Hachiko, has many things to offer. What better way to show this place off than through the point of view of this place’s famous furry friends!

With the help of three cute fur-balls, Google brings you 360-degree views of the picturesque Japanese destination. Adorable Akitas Ako, Asuka, and Puuko bring you: Pup View!

The dogs, with cameras mounted on their backs with doggie-approved harnesses, show us their point of view, all the while showcasing the beauty of Ōdate City. You can check it out HERE.

Samsung’s new LED light cover is the phone case we’ve always wanted

It lights up with different designs!

The newest Samsung flagships have just been announced and they’re all great, but there was one thing that really caught my eye — mostly because it was literally glowing.

Yes, that is the Samsung Galaxy S10 in my hands, and yes, those are actual LED lights on the case. Just so you can appreciate how pretty it is, here’s the LED case in action:

So what exactly is going on here?

Samsung’s LED light case looks and acts like a normal smartphone cover. It comes in blue and white and has a smooth exterior. It’s also pretty thin, considering, and it has a sturdy feel.

Once it’s attached, the LED cover app will appear and you’ll have different LED designs to choose from. You can go for the “Mood lighting” option which was shown above, or…

You can choose LED icons. Just some of my favorites include this beating heart… 💓💕💖💘💞

… and this adorable doggo. 🐶

There are honestly so many to choose from, I’m not even kidding.

It even does a smartphone camera timer countdown…

 

… and just like that I am sold!

Cheers, Samsung! Just when I thought I was over boring smartphone cases, you shove a shiny, sparkling one in my face and I am very, very convinced.
