    a friend at work showed me this. go to settings -- about phone -- and tap where it says android version. you get a cool easter egg there, and if press and hold that you get an even cooler one!

    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.

    Odd, if I go to Settings, Display, Daydream the only options I have are:
    Clock
    Colours
    Currents
    Fixed Clock
    Photo Frame
    Photo Table

    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 :p

    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
