I'm bored at work and was hoping you guys could give me some ideas for cool stuff to look at. Specifically, some cool ideas for graphics - the likes of which you see in MP3 visualisations, screen savers, demos etc.etc. What i'm looking for is a programming exercise, so I don't want to grab code but read some theory and code it for myself. Thanks guys

If you're wanting a programming exercise then just run a search for "procedural graphics" (or similar), with a bit of effort you can create some pretty impressive results purely from source code...

I wrote a few intentionally broken ray-tracers when I was bored a few years back. Maybe just me, but this whole thing about light going in straight lines is so overrated [grin]

Morrandir: i've done particle systems before but having just looked at some particle screen savers I think perhaps there is a lot more I could do in terms of the motion of the particles.

jolly: I shall do that search - I just came across chaotic attractors which look like they could be fun to code up.


Thanks guys, that should sort me out for the afternoon ;)
