Do androids dream of electric sheeps? That is the title of the book written by Phillip K. Dick. Ridley Scott based its popular movie Blade Runner on the book and this screensaver creates electric sheeps, which certainly are animated fractal designs.

Electric Sheep is a free open source code screensaver run by thousands of computers all around the world.

When your screensavers starts running, it creates an electric sheep which is sent to a central server were it is mixed with other electric sheeps and they'll create a robotic dream.

Furthermore, you can rate the electric sheeps, and the more votes an electric sheep has, the more times it appears in different computers, If you create some sheeps and they become popular, they will interbreed with the rest of the flock and produce children. By mutating and crossing the genomes, variations of your sheep will appear and themselves evolve.

If you like Blade Runner, this is a must have for your Mac.
