    Maybe I am alone in my nerdy need, but I feel like there should be a Hitchhiker's Guide theme somewhere for the Droid, hell any touchscreen device.
    Now if anyone knows of one, or has the ability to create one, please let me know.
    Or if anyone has really good instructions on how to build your own theme from the ground up, please link it, I would love to learn.
    Something tells me Douglas Adams would have abhorred all this touchscreen technology.... with the deepest love. :motdroidhoriz::)

    UPDATE: Unfortunatly I have been swamped with work and still haven't had the time to play around with bootanimations at all. I'm not sure where everybody else is on playing around with this. Thing is, I plan on having this phone for a long time, so when it happens, it happens. :motdroidvert:

    UPDATE: I've gathered up all the original radioshows on MP3 and am planning to go through and extract sound clips from the Guide. I was thinking of using Ringdroid. Anyone think there would be a better way of going about this and is there a preferred format we would like these in?:motdroidvert:

    I was thinking the other day how "Hitchiker's guide"-like the droid & iPhone are. VERY much like the "guide". I actually started working on one the other day but haven't finished it yet.

    geez....

    guess my idea wasnt all that original.

    I was waiting for my New PC to get started on this. Guess I might need to start building that PC sooner.

    im starting work on a bootscreen for the theme just cant decide what to do.
    couple ideas i have are to take this first image and have the words dont panic slowly scroll up from bottom of screen, or some kind of fading into different colors of the letters so they appear to glow. or something along those lines any other ideas let me know.

    [​IMG]

    And for this one i was thinking about just animating the ring rotating around the planet or the whole image. let me know what yall would like best.

    The rotating ring would be great. I was going to see about doing something with the old green character as well. Perhaps having it fade in and then the words Don't Panic popping up in front of it.

    I watched the BBC live action version of HHGTTG about a week before I got the Droid. The "Don't Panic" alert sound on the Droid is very familiar if you've seen that miniseries...or at least that's how I remembered it.

    You're right, it's been a few years since I saw the BBC series, but I think that does sound like it as well. Way to go Google for throwing that in there!

    Would love to see one also.

    On a related note, my wife bought me the droid for Christmas and gave it to me wrapped in a towel. She said the Hitchhiker's Guide said we should always have one with us.

    Any update on this/these? Love the pics and idea for the theme. Is it still in development or did you start a new thread elsewhere??
