And an Android-based wristwatch. Yes, seriously.

The future is a strange and scary place.

Internet mega-corporation Google is developing an Android-based video game console, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal (via Joystiq).

Evidently, the console is being developed alongside an Android-based wristwatch, which I presume will tap into the 80s era nostalgia that's totally in vogue right now.

According to the report, the console and watch are being developed as a buffer against Apple, with one source claiming that Google has been keeping its all-seeing eye on the Ouya.

The cubic Kickstarted Android-based console apparently sold out at Gamestop and Amazon US upon its launch yesterday, according to Develop, but it appears to be back in stock now.
