Adam Ratana, creator of a series of skull-themed live wallpapers, recently released Steampunk Skull Live Wallpaper to the Android  Market, bringing an interactive clockwork skull to your device's home screen.

The wallpaper is dynamic and interesting, without being too busy or distracting. The gears are interactive, speeding up or slowing down as you manipulate the screen. The LWP also includes settings which enable users to alter the wallpaper's performance to save battery life.

In the wallpaper's full version (which rings in at a cool $1.49), there are even more settings, allowing the user to customize the wallpaper's background and choose from several different types of gears.

With all of the mediocre live wallpapers floating around in the market, it's good to see one that's well thought out, has a great design, and a good level of interactivity/customization. If you've been looking for a new LWP to keep your home screen dynamic and animated, Steampunk Skull is definitely worth checking out.

    The skull is pretty tacky

    I don't own any Ed Hardy or Affliction stuff, so I probably won't be buying this one anytime soon.

    Its cool looking, and while I am not likely to get this I'm sure others might and its always good to know if it works with ICS HD displays
