It is a little over a week that I started as project manager at Layar. One of the first things I did is check out the dream catcher input. Lots of people sketched out their ideas for cool layar content and this is a selection of the ones that really inspired me.

Do you also have an idea for cool layar content? Start making your own with the dream catcher right now. It’s easy!

Enjoy, Marjolein ten Berge

Make your own Layar screen shot with the Dreamcatcher

Maarten Lens-FitzGerald July 8, 2009

layar_dreamcatcher_keynote09_template003 We have seen so many great ideas for Layar content that we searched for a way to give people the opportunity to express their own Layar ideas. We present to you the Dreamcatcher. With the Dreamcatcher you can now make your own Layar screen shots. So stop what you are doing and show us what you would like to see in the screen of your phone.

Get started with the Dreamcatcher

  1. It is easy, either use the Powerpoint template or two image assets provided below to make your screen shot.

  2. Publish your ideas on flickr, your website or blog and share them in the comments of this post.

We are looking forward to see your creativity! Go crazy!

  • Layar Powerpoint Template

  • Layar Image Assets:
    Download the image files by clicking on the images and selecting [save as].

    In your favorite editing program you can use these files. Use the example at the top of this post as a guide.

    First find a good background image and open it. Place the phone image on top of the background image. Make a copy of the background image and size and crop it so it fits ‘in’ the phone and is a bit smaller.Place the Layar interface image on top of the previous images. Add Logo and title in the title bar. Add PIO text in the white image area on the bottom. If possible change the brown colors to your own style.
