Pretty nice. I wish they offered a pen one size smaller, though -- the designs you can generate look pretty rough.

Thanks, crunchland. I just wasted twenty damn minutes.

Why bother ever picking up one of those tubes again? All the shaking and twisting - it's so much work...

Good but, I still like my spirograph more.

Cool. Move the pen fast for dots. Dots nice!

It's not Flash, it's Shockwave. I like.

This is fun! Goodbye, doing anything productive for a little while. : )

Spiffy! I too would prefer a sharper point pen. And a way to save some of my art...

Clicking the "Autodraw" is also a trippy way to pass the time.

Freaky. And strangly addictive.

I think I just hypnotized myself with the color changing pen.

After playing with it longer, I find my favorite effects come with Rotational Symmetry, and running the mouse around in the opposite direction to the rotation.

I also generally find that it's more fascinating to just run the mouse around on it awhile, than it is to create a design and, um, look at it. The real problem comes when your hand gets tired of mousing around. This should really be translated into a screen saver and/or Geiss-style plug-in.
