Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead.

Simple Marble Machine AR For Android
XDA member lyh1 shows an app/proof concept called Simple Marble Machine AR for your Android device. The app uses two trackers for augmenting 2 physics scenes, while if no tracker is active it is a simple clock widget with live background. However, you can swipe to view around the machine without trackers.
The two trackers represent a standalone machine, if you put them in right place, they can combine into a more complex machine.
