Motion wallpapers are animated, moving backgrounds designed for the screens of computers, tablets, smart phones, smart watches and similar devices. For example, one motion wallpaper by Apple shows a jellyfish, and the motion effects make it appear to be floating through the water.
Motion wallpaper themes include flowers blooming, various colors of smoke in motion, butterflies and fish in a koi pond. The creators of the flower-themed wallpaper spent many hours photographing flowers blooming over time. Many motion wallpapers use this technology to show the complexity of urban scenes, the excitement of speedy sports cars and the beauty of the natural world.
