AMAZING! Does anyone know how I can somehow save it to my computer and what program I can view it with? What type of file is it?

That's funny...I was trying to dig up the same link, Tony, but searched Google Logo dots and didn't find it. I should have looked for cloud!

It's interesting because you can make entire letters disappear by pushing all the dots to other letters.

David, I actually stumbled upon it when searching for Google logos that people made, particularly ones with animation, (its what you do when you're bored!) :)

And I didn't even know that it was posted here before! cool :)

As for how you can save it, that's Java, you might be able to save the JAR file or something...

Wow......the mosaic is cool, but I like the hypno-movement better......you kinda have to lean back to see it :)

The hypno-movement is really cool...any chance you're sharing the source? :)

Niraj, the source is client-side DHTML, so you can check it. What the PHP you don't see does the first time before caching is an imageCreateFromJPEG function, looping through all of the source's image pixels, and then creating the JavaScript data array out of it. I can send you the PHP of course if you're interested.

If you wouldn't mind, that'd be great as I'm just starting to get into playing around with php and images.

These aren't so awesome, and they're kind of making fun of Google, anyway, they're funny
