iOS-like Search for my Galaxy Nexus?

Is there an app or modification out there to emulate the swipe-right-on-the-home-screen-to-search like the iPhone and iPad? I find it tedious to tap the search bar at the top of the screen, and I am not interested in adding a search button to the soft key area.

I just want to swipe right on the home screen, and have the keyboard pop up with search ready to go.
