3D Gyroscope Simulation LWP

3D Gyroscope Simulation LWP


Gyroscope 3D is a live wallpaper that simulates a 3D mechanical gyroscope.

A gyroscope is a device for measuring or maintaining orientation, based on the principles of angular momentum. Mechanically, a gyroscope is a spinning wheel or disk in which the axle is free to assume any orientation. Although this orientation does not remain fixed, it changes in response to an external torque much less and in a different direction than it would without the large angular momentum associated with the disk's high rate of spin and moment of inertia. The device's orientation remains nearly fixed, regardless of the mounting platform's motion, because mounting the device in a gimbal minimizes external torque.
This LWP uses the integrated gyroscope to point the spinning axes of the rotor always in the up direction.

Features:
- Stable position (uses the integrated gyroscope / accelerometer)
- Gimbal positions calculated using inverse kinematics
- Gyroscope frame rotated on main screen scrolling
- Hardware accelerated rendering (using libgdx)
