It's a conky with Google Now theme.

You want to install conky and conky-manager and then download the theme.

Unpack the downloaded archive with theme into ~/.config (which is a hidden folder in your home folder - you can unhide it by pressing ctrl+H in your file manager). Now the theme should show up in conky manager.

Note: the conky-manager is not in the elementary repos and needs to be installed from developer's PPA - ppa:teejee2008/ppa.

  • I think I gave you enough info for more research (I'm busy now) but if you need more elaborate answer (e.g. you're a newbie), just let me know and I'll try to improve it. I know conky isn't the easiest thing to setup. – jena Jun 18 '16 at 9:24
  • could you explain how to add the downloaded theme? – Aleksandar Stefanović Jun 18 '16 at 14:18

    Try unpacking the downloaded theme and copying the resulting folder into ~/.conky (it is a hidden folder in your home folder, to unhide it press ctrl+H in your file manager) - you should be then able to see it in conky manager. If it still won't work, let me know and I will install conky and try it myself (I only installed conky for my sister and used one of the theme included in the conky manager (gotham), so I don't have it myself and don't remember all the steps). – jena Jun 20 '16 at 16:50
  • Extracting into ~/.conky worked, thanks! – Aleksandar Stefanović Jun 21 '16 at 8:47
