Santa Gets Google Glass!

Happy holidays!! I’ve been waffling on a Christmas home screen design for my Android Nexus 4, when what to my wondering eyes should appear, but geektastic inspiration!

When you combine me:
+ watching the holiday episode of EUReKA (O Little Town, in case you’re wondering),
+ drooling over the way-out-of-my-budget Google Glasses,
+ my adoration of bi-planes with wood-enhanced cockpits…

The result is Santa employing a HUD (heads up display), via a customized Google Glass interface, while delivering his presents to the town of Eureka on Christmas eve!  Your phone becomes a window to Santa’s point-of-view while driving his reindeer-powered sleigh.

Here’s how it looks on my Nexus 4:

Want it for your own phone?
Click the wallpaper image below to view it full size, then right click (or long press if you’re on an Android phone) and choose Save. Easy as pie! 🙂 Then set it as your wallpaper. I used a single screen so just the center of the wallpaper shows – but it’s up to your personal preference.
Santa's Sleigh - HUD - Heads Up Display - Google Glass

Totally awesome screen features!
+ One 4×4 widget using UCCW for the HUD/Google Glass interface.
+ The center targeting circle displays battery status with fluctuating color.
+ OK, Santa takes you straight to Google Now.
+ Reindeer-powered! Rudolph’s glowing nose!
+ Weather conditions, icon, and current temp for Santa’s location.
+ App drawer & favorite apps are easily accessed by clicking two of the stars!
+ The coolest part? The 3 tiny glowing dots light up when there’s a missed call, new email, or unread text; and they fade when nothing is new!!

If you’d like the UCCW and Zooper widget files to set this up on your own phone, please leave me a comment below (or use my contact form) and I’ll get them uploaded for sharing. Questions, comments, and constructive feedback are always welcome!

Merry Christmas to all and I hope Santa brings you everything your heart desires,
