One thing that makes Android so versatile is all of the available apps that allow for extreme customization of nearly any device. Out of those apps, one of the easiest ways to customize the look and feel of your device is with a custom launcher. We've seen interesting takes on the launcher before, but Team ROU is looking to bring a whole new kind of interface to Android -- and it looks damn good. Check it:

Unfortunately, ROU Launcher is still in its pre-alpha stages, so it's still a ways off from public availability. With that said, though, Team ROU hopes to have a full release ready by the end of the year. I, for one, will be waiting for the apk, and even though I'm not sure if it will replace my favorite launcher, I definitely want to give a run.
