The themes include a beach, cityscape, Japanese tea house, four seasons, sky and bus stop. They will change dynamically depending on the time of day and weather conditions. For example, the beach scene will show a sunrise or sunset that corresponds to the local times for them and characters in the bus stop theme will hold umbrellas if it is raining.
