    The Chameleon homescreen project is now looking for Kickstarter funding - i'm in!


    Chameleon, the oh-so-sexy homescreen replacement for Android tablets running Honeycomb and ICS, has announced that it seeking funding for development via crowdsourcing platform 'Kickstarter'. I'm in, how about you?

    The project, from development team 'Teknision', is looking to raise an intial funding of $50,000 and has already reached $10,000 with 27 days of their funding drive remaining. On this basis i'm hopeful that, given continued exposure, the project can reach it's funding goal (a requirement on Kickstarter in order to receive any money)!

    Aside from looking oh-so-good, what does Chameleon offer? Here's their pitch...

    Looking for a Home Screen for your Android Tablet? Introducing Chameleon. Chameleon replaces the standard Android Home Screens and App Launcher with one that isn't just more useful. But more beautiful as well.

    You can set up multiple Home Screens with your own layout of widgets and apps, giving you the most relevant information that you want, when you want it. So whenever you unlock your device, you are presented with the Home Screen that is immediately valuable to you.

    Chameleon Home Screens can be set up based on GPS locations, WiFi networks and time ranges, allowing you to define which Home Screen is the most relevant for the situation.

    To get a better feel for the concept, I strongly recommend heading over to the Chameleon homepage where there are a raft of design mockups which really give a feel for how the application works.

    The Kickstarter page details how to donate and what you will receive in return, which is tiered based upon your donation...
