This Android Experiment is a data-driven live wallpaper. It displays the battery level, wireless signal and number of notifications of your device in a simple visualization. The wallpaper cycles through three visualizations with every unlock, and each can be manipulated by tilting and moving the device. This simple ambient display creates a peripheral awareness of your phone’s status over the course of a day.Original design and concept by Mikkel Koser (http://www.mikkelkoser.com
