A friend of mine (a computer science major) sent me this link, and I'm hooked.

http://www.penguinhosting.net/~jpeck/Grappa/GrappaWH_White/

Basically, the screen loads white, but when you left-click and drag, you draw these amazingly beautiful, pypnotic patterns. (Right-clicking clears the screen so you can start again.)

I am desperately trying to think of something crafty to do with this, because I'm sure that something this pretty must have some kind of application... But even if it doesn't, it's fun and soothing to play around with --- so enjoy!

Can you print the screen and make an iron on for a t-shirt?

I was thinking of something like that... I've been taking screenshots of various patterns.

Have you tried doing cursive writing with it? Looks really neat! I'm playing around with it as lettering for CD covers (for the mix-CD swap, perhaps) and that sort of thing. Or maybe a really high-tech-looking Christmas card...

Wow. That is so much fun.
When you do random swirls, does that remind anyone else of primary school science experiments involving food colouring being dropped into water?
So, so much fun.
