On the Nexus 7 you can have the Bean Flinger screen as the daydream mode. For some reason it isn't an option on the N4.

Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhh!

The Bean Flinger option only appears in Daydreams after you've viewed the easter egg.

Do I lose geek points for admitting that I had never viewed the easter egg on my phone? :-)

No... don't worry... we won't hold it against you

When you've got the massive jellybean on the screen, a long hold on the jellybean will mean that you have the option to add the bean flinger to daydream

Hidden things like this are called easter eggs. So while you dont see an actual easter egg, you are seeing the right thing

Tap it three times quickly, you should get it. I've seen this long ago from older Android versions. What's really new for me is the animation after long-pressing the image.

Its an Easter egg within the commonly known android version easter egg

You'll commonly hear of it referred to as the bean flick game
