Default {REQ}Blacked out/transparent Google now page.

Just thought this might be a good idea for those that frequently use the integrated Google now page in the Google experience launcher.

I think a transparent or blacked out Google now would be very neat.

I have no experience in theming beyond some icon images, so I figured a request was necessary. I have had this on my mind for awhile I figured I'd share.

Any one like to take on this idea and put it in motion? I am free to help to make this possible.

Any thoughts on this???........

I understand team black out has backed out and transparent apps, i have used them many times. but still has no affect on the Google now integrated page.
