Screensavers! (My Favourites)

Hey Guys,

Lets face it, the screensavers that come with Windows are, well, terrible... Mac has a bit of an advantage, as we all know the OS is style over substance.

So, why not take one of the screensavers below and make your computer chill out in style ; ) (you may recognise Flurry from OSX ... that's because it is from OSX)

[Warning - A lot of these are AWESOME, and will likely consume half your day just watching them]

Flurry (windows) : LINK





Really Sick Screensaver Pack : LINK

This pack has multiple screensavers, check here for a full list with previews - In the meantime here are some of the best ones included in the above link:


 



 



Briblo - LINK

[Yes, it really does build real time in LEGO!]


breveCreatures - LINK

Ok, now this is kind of exciting - A screensaver that simulates the evolution of virtual creatures in a physically simulated 3D world. Beginning initially with random creatures, the screensaver uses a genetic algorithm to develop creatures capable of realistic locomotion behaviors

So basically, your little dude evolves every time the screensaver comes up, the creature is saved when you bring down the screensaver, and comes back next time... Holy f&S^.

Here are some vids of the simulation in action:



Electric Sheep - LINK

This is pure amazing.



Really hope all of you found something you like out of this list! If you need a wildcard still, click here for dancing Japanese girls with a clock, and here to uhh... preview...

Till next time,

Mike.
