Android 3D Live Wallpaper: Particle Storm



This Live Wallpaper app intended to demonstrate the power and flexibility of OpenGL on newer Android phones like the HTC EVO 4G, Nexus One and Droid X. Glowing particles swirl around the local magnetic field, drop due to gravity and respond to your touch. The wallpaper is rendered in OpenGL ES for maximum 3D effect.

You can choose primary and secondary colors of the particles, and the color mix of the particles can change as you slide through your home screens.

The program defaults to a moderate number of particles. If your phone can handle it (EVO 4G, Droid X, etc.) I’d recommend cranking it up in the settings. Likewise if you’re experiencing framerate issues try toning down the number of particles.

For the physics nerds out there, the particles simulate charged electrons spiraling along the local magnetic field as sampled by the compass inside advanced Android phones. Accelerometer information is also incorporated to allow the particles to fall towards the ground regardless of the orientation of the phone.

No ads or any payment required – my goal in publishing this app is simply to get the maximum number of people enjoying a great technical demo I wrote for myself.

    It's there in the android market. Use the following website and when you find it there under one of the categories, just use google goggles and scan the qr code for that particular wallpaper and you will find it. I did and I seriously love this one. Quite colorful and simple. Looks great. I think youtube is not allowing me to post a link to another website so trying to just post it like this. Hope it helps!
