GFlux

Undulating waves on a rotating grid. Written by Josiah Pease; 2000.

GLBlur

Flowing field effects from the vapor trails around a moving object. This is done by rendering the scene into a small texture, then repeatedly rendering increasingly-enlarged and increasingly-transparent versions of that texture onto the frame buffer.

GLSchool

A school of fish, using the classic "Boids" algorithm by Craig Reynolds. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boids Written by David C. Lambert and Jamie Zawinski; 2006.

GLSlideshow

Loads a random sequence of images and smoothly scans and zooms around in each, fading from pan to pan. Written by Jamie Zawinski and Mike Oliphant; 2003.

Hexstrut

A grid of hexagons composed of rotating Y-shaped struts. Waves of rotation and color changes randomly propagate across the plane. Written by Jamie Zawinski; 2016.

Hydrostat

Wiggly squid or jellyfish with many tentacles. A muscular hydrostat is a biological structure used to move its host about, consisting of muscles with no skeletal support. It performs its hydraulic movement without fluid in a separate compartment, as in a hydrostatic skeleton. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muscular_hydrostat Written by Justin Windle and Jamie Zawinski; 2016.

Hypertorus

A Clifford Torus: a torus lying on the "surface" of a 4D hypersphere. Inspired by Thomas Banchoff's book "Beyond the Third Dimension: Geometry, Computer Graphics, and Higher Dimensions", Scientific American Library, 1990. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N-sphere https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clifford_torus https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regular_polytope Written by Carsten Steger; 2003.

JigglyPuff

Quasi-spherical objects are distorted. You have a tetrahedron with tesselated faces. The vertices on these faces have forces on them: one proportional to the distance from the surface of a sphere; and one proportional to the distance from the neighbors. They also have inertia. The resulting effect can range from a shape that does nothing, to a frenetic polygon storm. Somewhere in between there it usually manifests as a blob that jiggles in a kind of disturbing manner. Written by Keith Macleod; 2003.

Kaleidocycle

Draw a ring composed of tetrahedra connected at the edges that twists and rotates toroidally. When a series of tetrahedra are joined at the edges in a loop, it is possible for them to rotate continously through the center without deforming. This only works with an even number of tetrahedra, and there must be eight or more, or they don't fit. Written by Jamie Zawinski; 2013.

Lavalite

A Simulation a Lava Lite(r). Odd-shaped blobs of a mysterious substance are heated, slowly rise to the top of the bottle, and then drop back down as they cool. This simulation requires a fairly fast machine (both CPU and 3D performance.) "LAVA LITE(r) and the configuration of the LAVA(r) brand motion lamp are registered trademarks of Haggerty Enterprises, Inc. The configuration of the globe and base of the motion lamp are registered trademarks of Haggerty Enterprises, Inc. in the U.S.A. and in other countries around the world." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lava_lamp https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metaballs https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavarand Written by Jamie Zawinski; 2002.

Lockward

A translucent spinning, blinking thing. Sort of a cross between the wards in an old combination lock and those old backlit information displays that animated and changed color via polarized light. Written by Leo L. Schwab; 2007.

Maze3D

A re-creation of the 3D Maze screensaver from Windows 95. Written by Sudoer; 2018.

MirrorBlob

A wobbly blob distorts images behind it. Written by Jon Dowdall; 2003.

QuasiCrystal

A quasicrystal is a structure that is ordered but aperiodic. Two-dimensional quasicrystals can be generated by adding a set of planes where x is the sine of y. Different complex aperiodic plane tilings are produced depending on the period, position, and rotation of the component planes, and whether the rotation of the planes is evenly distributed around the circle (the "symmetry" option, above) or random. See also the "RD-Bomb", "CWaves" and "Penrose" screen savers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quasicrystal Written by Jamie Zawinski; 2013.

RazzleDazzle

Generates an infinitely-scrolling sequence of dazzle camouflage patterns. Dazzle Ships, in addition to being the best album by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, were military vessels during World War I and early in World War II that were painted not to conceal but to confuse: with these Cubist overlapping stripes, it was very hard to estimate their size, range and heading. This was a big deal before the invention of Radar. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dazzle_camouflage https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cubism https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dazzle_Ships_%28album%29 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acoustic_mirror https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radar Written by Jamie Zawinski; 2018.

Furthermore, it is possible to smoothly deform the real projective plane between the Roman surface and the Boy surface while turning it or walking on it. Inspired by François Apéry's book "Models of the Real Projective Plane", Vieweg, 1987. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boy%27s_surface https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_surface http://mathworld.wolfram.com/BoySurface.html http://mathworld.wolfram.com/RomanSurface.html Written by Carsten Steger; 2014.

Sierpinski3D

The recursive Sierpinski tetrahedron fractal. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sierpinski_triangle#Analogs_in_higher_dimension Written by Jamie Zawinski and Tim Robinson; 1999.

Sonar

A sonar display pings (get it?) the hosts on your local network, and plots their distance (response time) from you. The three rings represent ping times of approximately 2.5, 70 and 2,000 milliseconds respectively. Alternately, it can run a simulation that doesn't involve hosts. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ping#History Written by Jamie Zawinski and Stephen Martin; 1998.

Spheremonics

These closed objects are commonly called spherical harmonics, although they are only remotely related to the mathematical definition found in the solution to certain wave functions, most notably the eigenfunctions of angular momentum operators. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spherical_harmonics#Visualization_of_the_spherical_harmonics Written by Paul Bourke and Jamie Zawinski; 2002.

SplitFlap

Simulates a split-flap display, an old style of electromechanical sign as seen in airports and train stations, and commonly used in alarm clocks in the 1960s and 1970s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Split-flap_display https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flip_clock Written by Jamie Zawinski; 2015.

Vigilance

Security cameras keep careful track of their surroundings. You can trust them. Everything is completely under control. Written by Jamie Zawinski; 2017.

Voronoi

A Voronoi tessellation. Periodically zooms in and adds new points. The existing points also wander around. There are a set of control points on the plane, each at the center of a colored cell. Every pixel within that cell is closer to that cell's control point than to any other control point. That is what determines the cell's shapes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voronoi_diagram https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tessellation Written by Jamie Zawinski; 2007.

WindupRobot

A swarm of wind-up toy robots wander around the table-top, bumping into each other. Each robot contains a mechanically accurate gear system inside, which you can see when the robot's shell occasionally fades to transparency. Also, sometimes a cartoony word bubble pops up above a robot, full of random text. Written by Jamie Zawinski; 2014.
