Quirky Wallpaper: Set your mouse movement as desktop wallpaper

Turn your mouse movements into a zany desktop wallpaper using IOGraph.

Developed by Moscow designer Anatoly Zenkov & his colleague Andrey Shipilov, the JAVA application is designed to be run in the background as you go about your everyday ‘computing’. Druing this time IOGraph builds up a picture based on the movement of your mouse. Once you’ve had it running for a while you can download the created image and set it as your desktop wallpaper.

Download IOGraph by clicking the following button: –

Once downloaded double click on the .jar archive to run it. Alternatively run it from the terminal by using: –

  • cd /location/of/jar
  • java -jar IOGraph.jar 
Press the circle in the middle of the screen to start recording and press it again to stop. Download the wallpaper by clicking the icon as per the screenshot above.
