Screen Saver Idea

This is a little tricky to explain.

Screensaver off state: Your desktop shows a nice bg view. You have your icons lined up. Your bag image is a panorama with grass and sky and stuff like that. Obviously, it's static- it's just a picture!

Screensaver on state: Once the screensaver is on, the entire screen is captured, including the taskbar and icons and the bg image starts to animate. A plane flies over. The grass waves with wind. The trees bend. A deer runs by occasionally. All is random. When the mouse is touched (or whatever) PC behaves same as screensaver off state.

So to the user the transition is transparent and it looks like that the bg is just alive.
