Turn Your Desktop Into a Lava Lamp

Bring back 'far out' memories of the 70's with this mesmerising animated wallpaper. Drempels is a nifty piece of software that makes your computer's desktop behave like a screensaver, providing a hypnotic and psychedelic display of constant motion (best viewed on LSD). It allows you to add your own images and also runs in a screensaver mode. It's also open-source now, so you can get under the hood and tinker with the code if you so desire.

This is the first animated desktop program that we've come across that not only works, but it's stable and doesn't affect the system performance at all (when you put every setting on low and limit FPS to 10). Give it a try - it's really cool!

DIRECT DOWNLOAD (529 kb) - From the Drempels website:
"Drempels makes colorful, swirling, hallucinogenic patterns that resemble a hurricane or tornado. It normally runs in your Windows background or 'desktop', replacing your old still-image wallpaper with gently-animating visuals... and meanwhile, you can use your computer just like you normally would. It uses very little CPU overhead - so little that it even runs smoothly on a 233 MHz system!"
