Google to offer SDK for Android live wallpapers

Random people ask to hold my Nexus One every time I pull it out, as I have walked around the show floor of CES. Most of these people know little about Android, but the first thing they always ask about is the live wallpapers. It might seem like a battery draining gimmick to some, but this new feature of Android 2.1 is getting the most buzz from people who are new to Android.

There are currently 10 live wallpapers to choose from and that number will be greatly expanding soon. Google will be releasing a SDK that will allow developers to code their own wallpapers, according to Android Engineer Romain Guy.

What kinds of interactive wallpapers would you like to see developers create?
