Reaching the Android people
With Google Glass coming soon, it really sucks that the Android UI is not to my liking. It has a billion menus and it's all sorts of confusing.
Now let's say my ideal UI is to mass liking and it would immediately become a huge success if adapted and I had every little detail about the design planned out. Next I wanna get it worked into Android, right?
Now there are two ways I can think of to achieve this. The first is to make it for Gaia, WebOS, Plasma Active, or some other similar project (and for the sake of simplicity, the Gaia people love it and change a bunch of stuff to incorporate it into their UI). Google sees this, thinks maybe they could benefit from doing the same thing, changes a bunch of shit and does it.
The other way is making a Kickstarter for a mod of Android with this new UI. It'll have to be super hacky and won't be as good as if it was made by the Android developers, but on the flip side, it can easily target non-nerds (It's pretty safe to assume no non-nerds have tried Gaia), it can prove there is demand (After all, someone paid for it) and it's already being built on top of Android (so same target, same technologies powering it). Doing it this way, I think it'll be more likely the Android developers would take note, and maybe use some of the same ideas.
I am making this thread to ask you smart people of FRCF if you believe method #2
