Cute Android: Open Source Android Apps for Developers: Lcarswallpaper (LCARS Live Wallpaper for Android devices)

Description
Lcarswallpaper is an open source Android project which is a Star Trek LCARS themed live wallpaper for Android 2.1+ devices. What it does:
* Current CPU utilization
* Current CPU speed
* Memory consumption of running services and applications (tap “WARP EF”)
* Power status of phone (tap “WARP EF”)
* System uptime
* Stardate (ST:TNG format)
* Two other stats I’ll leave open for interpretation
* Stats collection threaded to minimize UI lag
* Interactive star ship schematics (courtesy L Tanganho)
* All threads pause when wallpaper is not visible (low CPU/battery utilization)
* changelog

The LCARS design leaves plenty of black space to arrange your icons/widgets. I prefer a 5-row layout (available in some ROMs), but 4 works pretty well. The interface looks best in portrait and switches to a minimalist background in landscape (with no live system stats).
