    i’ve always loved the interactive images on various occasions that google comes up with, everytime they get better!
    I also like to collect and save these images to computer. :) i only wish i could somehow do this to the entire animation of the image like the liftoff animation cannot be saved. :|
    However a great approach… Two thumbs up :-D B-)
