Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

May 13, 2007 by Janine
Electric sheep is a wonderful screensaver. Get it HERE.
It has a very calming effect. Put on some soothing music, be it trance, tribal drums, power metal, whatever you like. Watch the "sheep" morph and evolve.

Here are some screen captures of sheep.

You can rate the sheep by pressing the up and down arrow keys- here's an example of a "sheeps up."

There is so much variation in terms of shape, pattern, speed, color...
I prefer sheep in greens, blues, and purples, with circular or spiral patterns. Yellows and reds, especially with spiky or jagged fast moving patterns, elicit a "sheeps down."
Any other sheep watchers out there? What kind of sheep do you like?

Nice to see another sheepy out there!

Brilliant blue swirls are definitely a sheeps up, ropey red always gets a sheeps down. Kaleidoscopic patterns? Don't even go there, swirls or nothing thank you very much. Try it on two monitors for best effect - it's got the minerals. A fine way for an IT professional to spend a day I think we'll all agree.

Recommended sheeps up tunes:
Anything by "Astral Projection" or "Man With No Name"
Hallucinogen - LSD
Kasabian - Club Foot
