The Chromebook Pixel is without doubt a lovely piece of technology, even if it is a little pricey at £1049, and without doubt its killer feature is the ultra hi-res 2560×1700 with 239 PPI screen. To help showcase the screen Google have created a visually stunning live wallpaper called time lapse and now it’s been uploaded to YouTube for everyone to enjoy (even if we don’t get to see it in it’s native display).
The video comes in at 311M and is stored in /use/share/oem/. away from users eyes, this is then played using a simple chrome app.
If you are using Linux you can recreate the effect using Animated Video Wallpaper 1.7, and I am sure there are other options for other OS’s.
