Lion screensavers: Matrix Reloaded, HyperSpace

7 December 2011 12,366 views 4 Comments

A little advice, if you’re planning a trip down a wormhole, do it before you eat. And, given the choice, which would you choose — the blue pill or the red pill? I suppose if a simmering cool babe in skintight black leather was the one asking…

Hyperspace (download) is a screensaver for Snow Leopard and Lion that simulates what it might be like to travel at speeds faster than light. Whether you call it warp, ridiculous, hyper or whatever speed, it’s best experienced on an empty stomach.

Matrix Reloaded GL (download) isn’t the best cascading alpha-numeric character screensaver I’ve ever seen, but it’s pretty neat and very free. It’s open source and there are versions also available for Windows, Linux, BSD, and many other Unix based operating systems.

    I installed hyperspace, the screensaver preference opened, but was blank. I clicked on desktop pictures, and system preferences crashed. It crashes again when opening desktop & screensaver preferences.

    I trashed the file, I also tried trashing com.apple.desktop.plist (and screensaver.plist), still system preferences is crashing when I try to open desktop & screensaver preferences. What happened??

    I found out what really happened here. Installing this screensaver merely revealed a problem that was already there with Lion, iPhoto, and desktop pictures. More details at:


    I have reinstalled hyperspace, and it works without problem, Dennis
