Perhaps bored with mapping real places, Google turns to the mathematical landscapes of fractal equations with JuliaMaps – all the fun of generative fractals without any of the need for downloading software (sorry, Rudy Rucker). So if you feel the need for a short dose of visual psychedelia during your lunchbreak, you’re all sorted. Turn out the lights, will you?
EDIT: I’ve not tried it with the Big G’s own Chrome, but Firefox and Opera are both really struggling to handle JuliaMaps right now – it works, but it’s mad slow. Rucker’s software might be a better bet after all! 🙂
