Aerial Screensaver

Aerial: A damn pretty screensaver

Apple has been showing off their new hotness here and there. Some of that hotness comes in the form of the latest iteration of the Apple TV. One of the features I was drawn to when it was initially announced was the new screensaver.

I know right? What your computer looks like when you’re not near it is WAY important. You know you agree… deep down inside.

With that, I wondered if a kind soul out there had decided to publish this feature in a way that OTHER computers could use it. This lead me to Aerial, a simple repo you can download and install on your Mac. OSX only as far as I understand at the moment.

Aerial is a Mac screen saver based on the new Apple TV screen saver that displays the aerial movies Apple shot over New York, San Francisco, Hawaii, China, etc.

It has a nice feature, that it will run a different random instance of the screensaver on each monitor you have connected.

Play Different Aerial On Each Display: If you’ve got multiple monitors, this setting loads a different aerial for each of your displays.

Big shoutout to John Coates for putting this online and making my computers dreams look a little better.
