Collecting cool ideas

Post by Jalmari » Mon Oct 12, 2015 1:49 am

I haven't seen a topic for this here, so I decided to create it.
The idea here is to talk about non-critical features that'd be nice to have in future, after alpha state.
If you get a good idea or find something intresting from somewhere, please post it here.

Here's my crappy example:
Animated wallpapers.
Rendering some 2d things won't eat much of the power of a modern PC.
Could work similiar way as screensavers.

It could look something like this:

What you're asking for is called Active Desktop.

And, actually, I'd like that too. It's an awesome idea, in concept. I'd love to make a really fancy JavaScript/HTML5 animated web page and set it as my wallpaper.

I'd call it more like just animated or live wallpaper. From what I remember, active desktop did actually interactive websites as the wallpaper.

I doubt very much that implement some of these ideas.

While using a mac I came across a small, but handy feature. When removable media is inserted it gives a shortcut to it in desktop.
