BugMirror is a different screen saver; as its packed with bugs!

Nowadays screens are made out of pixels. What if they were made of living creatures instead of pixels?

That's what BugMirror tries to explore, as it proposes a screen made of thousands of little bugs.

The bugs react to camera input, trying to mimic what the camera sees. They are free to walk around and change their color. This creates a low-precision slow-reacting mirror, giving it a very organic and unique feeling.

Every single Bug thinks locally, reacting to its surroundings. But by having thousands of them, all thinking on their own, makes the whole bug more...

What's New

Version 1.12:
  • Optimized parts of the drawing code, should feel faster (especially on lower end graphic cards).


BugMirror requires a camera, and a G5 processor or better is recommended to achieve high framerates.
