Short update today. Lots of pictures.
Finally finished my augmented reality project. What a mission that was. Big thanks to my team that wasted the best part of this week working on it.

Rainmeter is awesome. I've had this for a little while now. Makes my desktop look nice yeah. See below.

There are so many different things you can do with this program. Here's another couple of peoples desktops that have been enhanced with Rainmeter.

It's really really easy to set up and it's so so flexible. You simply find a skin you like, download and install. Done.

I'm using:
Encoded for the squares on the top left and the date and time on the top right
DarkEve for the clock on the left
Winamp Circles for the Winamp thingy at the bottom
Sinister for the date down the left
illustro for the boxes on the right (no link because that's included with Rainmeter)

The thing measuring RAM and CPU usage is a Windows gadget (not applicable)

These skins all come with a lot of other little thingys as well so check them out.

You can do some other pretty flash things like use a video as your background, animations on window displays, lots and lots. Check the guy below if you aren't convinced this is awesome.

Link me to yours in the comments. Keen for more ideas to spice mine up.



  1. I just set up my desktop with rainmeter not too long ago. Love the way it tidied up the look of things. I'm also a huge fan of all the practical info it can give. My personal favorite addon is the BRK word clock. Looks pretty nifty.

  2. I want that Pacman background so bad! This all looks awesome though.

  3. Hey, its foo
    I already had rainmeter. But here is my desktop
