    Hello all - I'd appreciate if you'd try out the new live wallpaper I've written. 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.

    The whole thing is totally free, no ads or anything - I just want to share my tech demo work with anyone who's interested.

    Find more details here or look at the Youtube video here: YouTube - Android 3D Live Wallpaper: Particle Storm

    Kinda nifty, but too hard on the eyes when actually using the phone. Maybe add a rotating pic behind it of a galaxy, and it would be nice to have particle appear from random points, or the corners, instead of just the center.

    I used to have a screen saver a bit like it on the pc years ago.. wish I could remember what it was called now.
