The Chaos Game Revisited
For those of you who enjoyed fractal week, or just like to see pretty animations, here are a couple of videos of the Chaos Game played on the Sierpinski Triangle and Hexagon with a little twist.
While moving towards our vertices we also rotate each point we play (more on the method some other time). I made both of these videos in high-school using Visual Basic 5/6.
Mandelbrot – The Early Years
And while we’re taking a trip down memory lane here’s another animation using Visual Basic, some early Mandelbrot work also from High-School (I apologize for the low-res, best I could render at the time).
Next week is AI week here and at the Buckley Blog. We’ll be exploring ideas from pioneers and current thinkers, as well as pop-culture and video games. We’ll have a special edition of AGFV on Thursday featuring three of the more interesting portrayals of AI in video games (“Look at you, hacker”), and wrap it up with a little Star Trek fun.
Enjoy your weekend!
