Electric fractal imagery screen saver.

Developer website: Scott Draves

Electric Sheep is a screen saver that owes its name to Philip K. Dick's novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. It realizes the collective dream of sleeping computers from all over the Internet.

When the screen-saver is activated, the screen goes black and an animated 'sheep' appears [note: sheep = beautiful, fractal based, MPEG2 compressed animations- this does not put hopping sheep all over your screen]. Behind the scenes, the screen-saver contacts a server and joins the parallel computation of new sheep. Samples are available.

Every fifteen minutes, 24/7, a new sheep is born and distributed to all clients for display. Each sheep is an animated fractal flame.
