Fyre, a really cool graphic-creating application



Hi everybody,

So I met David Trowbridge at SIGGRAPH last week and he showed me this cool application he wrote called Fyre. You have to see the gallery of images it's produced: http://zero.navi.cx/gallery/v/software/fyre/

The program as described on the site:

"Fyre is a tool for producing computational artwork based on histograms of iterated chaotic functions. At the moment, it implements the Peter de Jong map in a fixed-function pipeline with an interactive GTK+ frontend and a command line interface for easy and efficient rendering of high-resolution, high quality images."

An RPM is available for Fedora: http://flapjack.navi.cx/releases/fyre/fyre-1.0.0-2.i686.rpm

Anyway it seems like it would be a great tool for creating hawt-looking abstract backgrounds. The only issue is that it produces bitmaps, not vectors. However, you could probably get some neat results from bitmap tracing the output in Inkscape. :)
