Turn your Mouse Movements Into a Desktop Wallpaper

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

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

Developed by Moscow designer Anatoly Zenkov & his colleague Andrey Shipilov, the Java application  is set to run in the background while you go about your everyday ‘computing’.

During 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 generated image and set it as your desktop wallpaper.


Download IOGraph by clicking the following button:

Download IO Graphic for Linux

Using It

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.
