Mesmerize Your Friends with Liquid Physics LWP for Android
We all love the ability to have animated and interactive stuff in the background of our beloved Android devices. For this reason, XDA member jgittins made a port of Liquid Physics, which is a concept created by a dev called Grant Kot. This concept app was made for the iPhone and today, we see it in the Android working very nicely. XDA member quinbd later optimized the code to be able to utilize the whole screen and to be able to use the G-sensor. The app runs beautifully well in Android devices but as it uses lots of processor resources, it will drain your batter rather quickly.
I made a quick port of Grant Kot’s liquid simulator java applet and turned it into a live wallpaper.
It uses a ton of cpu so it will probably drain the battery pretty fast but it’s fun to play with.
You can find more information in the LWP thread.
