We have featured several LiveWallpapers on the Portal in the past—everything from Mario dashing through the different worlds in his game and Tetris pieces falling and accommodating themselves to Androids falling on your screen and bouncing around as you move your device. However from time to time, we come across some wallpapers so interesting that they deserve attention.
XDA Forum Member suffick released a few LWPs on XDA recently. And his latest addition Node is a physics-lover’s must have. The premise of the LWP is that you have an Android logo comprised of dots on your home screen. When the dots are touched either by tapping or swiping your finger, the dots spread around until they hit their elastic limit. Once this happens, they slowly return to their original position. All in all, the Android actually regenerates itself. For a somewhat analogous comparison, think T-1000 in Terminator 2.
Everything in this LWP can be easily customized such as the size of the spheres, their spacing, colors of the dots and background, and even the Android’s regeneration speed (i.e. how fast the dots get back into position). If you are into live wallpapers, please take this one for a spin and be sure to provide the dev with some feedback if you can think of any way to improve it.
This started off as a bit of a physics experiment, but I found it quite fun to play with and decided to turn it in to a
