  • Description

    Electric Sheep is a screen saver run by thousands of people all over the world. When these computers “sleep”, the screen saver comes on and the computers communicate with each other by the internet to share the work of creating morphing abstract animations known as “sheep”. The result is a collective “android dream”, an homage to Philip K. Dick’s novel ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’.

Review

Probably the cleanest, finest renderings I’ve seen in this type of screen saver, and the idea behind the project is undeniably cool. I work on a double monitor system at home, and my only gripe is that I can’t get it to appear on my secondary monitor, even while using UltraMon. If anyone can, please let me know how. Very, very cool, and a crowd favorite.
