More Android Live Wallpaper!

I got such a great reaction from my first Android live-wallpaper that I figured that I should make another but this time in 3D!!

Langton's Ant 3D

This app had me getting my hands dirty with OpenGL ES, and I think the results are pretty great! It can be downloaded for your Android device here.

This app is based on work I did starting way back in 2012 with the no longer existing design firm ‘Dumb Eyes’. It started as a Processing 1.5.1 sketch with a lot of hacking to try to keep the framerate up on my aging hardware. Rather than use the Processing for Android I ported the code over to pure Java/OpenGL ES which was not especially difficult and the result remained performant!
