I have an awesome idea for a homescreen wallpaper. I doubt that it would be possible, though...
Idea: The background would use the camera image. You would still see the icons, status bar, and dock. The kicker is that it would look like the screen is just glass with images on it. It would look like you could see right through the phone!!!
What do you guys think?

Im not sure if I am following you.
Are you trying to use a camera image AS the wallpaper. You can do this in summerboard.
OR.. are you trying to have the camera ON as your wallpaper so whereever you move the phone the background changes?

The latter. So the screen would look like glass, as if the phone "guts" behind the screen were transparent.

That would drain your battery really fast

it *might* look cool ... if the LCD doesn't lag ... lol
doesn't look that cool on my digital camera..
i've seen this type of things done .. a branch of active camouflage ..
but the trick is the camera's field of vision has to be great enough, as well it has to be dead center in the display.Best Regards

I understand your point of needing the image to be dead-center. Its really not that important for me. Its the whole "that's different, that's cool!!!" thing that im going for.
As for the battery life, this iPhone practically lives on the charger on my desk!!!

That would be sweet, I would be interested in that!

You are wanting a transparent screen then? Like the do on laptops and desktops?

I could see it working for when it is in the dock, thats about it. Nice idea though.

Yeah I really like the idea. Even if it was just some sort of screensaver/wallpaper for while its docked. but the icons show up on top of it.
I think it would be cool and a neat little "trick" type of thing.
Kinda sounds like something those guys that made the iBeer and iSnack need to make.
