Android 4.2 has a hidden Jelly Bean Daydream

Nyan cat, and Jelly Bean has the floating jelly beans (and singular candy cane).This new Daydream is unlocked after you go to checkout one of Google's standard Android Easter eggs: the version art. Ever since Android 2.3 Ginger Bread, if you go to Settings>About device and tapped repeatedly on the Android version number, you'd get the version art. Gingerbread had a gingerbread zombie, Honeycomb had the Android bee, Ice Cream Sandwich had the Android
It turns out that after you check out the version art Easter egg in Android 4.2, a new Daydream is unlocked which allows your device to display the floating jelly beans when charging/docked. Even better is that this Daydream is interactive, and you can fling the beans. The lack of interactivity was something that disappointed us about the other Daydreams.

I read it as bean flicker for a second. That would be something entirely different haha.

I just tried it, and I didn't unlock the daydream after simply viewing the easter egg. I had to hold down on the screen for a second until I felt a vibration. At which point I saw jelly beans all over the screen that were interactive. It was then that I had unlocked the daydream

One BIG issue with the Daydream feature is that LED notifications are automatically turned 'off' while Daydream is active. If it wern't for this bug, Daydream would be an excellent 'screensaver' like feature that allows us to quickly just 'touch' the screen to activate the phone while docked or charging. Fix this Google!
