Sudarshan,<br><br>Could be really cool, especially as a reply to the iphone people (iphone guy: I've got multitouch! me: my phone ripples, and when I close a window it lights on fire(isn't blowing mac people's minds what beryl's for?)) but I really think it's something that should be able to turn off REALLY quick... something that would get annoying very fast.
<br><br>as for performance, the version released october-ish was announced to have a graphics accellerator onboard... if you can offload your effect to that, shouldn't be a problem<br><br>really makes you wonder about a version of beryl for mobile devices... you could create a lot of effects... as long as it's as easy to switch back and forth, I'm a fan

Hi guys,<br>I got this idea of a small eye candy after having a look at beryl. How<br>about when, someone touches the touchscreen ripples get generated with<br>the point of contact as the centre. Am not sure how useful this could be
<br>but, i feel this would be a nice "fluidy" feedback to the onscreen<br>keyboard. Given the FPU on the neo, I am also curious what kind of<br>performance deteriotation we are looking at and the difficulty level in
<br>implementing such a hack.<br><br>Regards<br>Sudharshan S<br><a href="http://www.sudharsh.wordpress.com">http://www.sudharsh.wordpress.com</a><br><br><br><br><br>_______________________________________________<br>OpenMoko community mailing list
