Here’s a trippy live wallpaper for you

A developer named Jfreu sent us a live wallpaper that really trips you out. Basically it it’s a live wallpaper that is “based on a stereographic projection which can be done on any equirectangular image.” What you do is install the APK and select the special photos. When you run your finger over the screen the wallpaper will move with it in any direction. Depending on the wallpaper it can get quite psychedelic. It was quite interesting watching the wallpaper move as I was trying it out.

The application can be downloaded from here.

He also has a wealth of additional equirectangular images here.

    Very clever but it won’t recognize the folder I give it.

    Little correction, actually the available in the link is the test version. The real app is available on the market.

    Does your phone support live wallpapers ? did you browser the live wallpapers to find it ? do you have an error at install ?

  • lakeshow
