in a unknown area of Cosmos, multicoloured geometrical forms curve
and play with the light.
It seems simple
(and it is!), but this screensaver fulfills perfectly its two principal
1. To move enough
pixels to prevent unaesthetic marks from appearing on your screen;
2. To trap any
potential spectator, who will then stare at the pretty colors instead
of doing whatever
task he has to do.
On this latest
aspect, "Abstract Dance" is a total success: the rhythmic
oscillations of these coloured loops which tie and untie on the
stary background will quickly plunge you in an hypnotic transe.
(well, it has this effect on me: sometimes, I stare at the spectacle
during 5 or 10 minutes without being able to wake up...).
Enough said: Test
it, you will judge by yourself. Here are the specifications:
- Space environment recreated using photographs
from the Hubble telescope;
- Up to 1000 objects animated on screen;
- You can choose the shape of these objects (among
the Platonic Solids: tetrahedrons, cubes, octahedrons, dodecahedrons
- Don't need a powerful graphic card -> it
works perfectly with a bureautic GPU;
- Simple installation and uninstallation (there's
an integrated install program);
