These pictures look like multicolor SEM (scanning electron microscope) images. Very cool. 8-)

a bit of poking in the internet uncovered a program for your PC.

Nice! Interesting to play with those iteration settings. My PC just did an emergency shutdown... time to get rid of the dust on the CPU heatsink again :lol:

the rendering is not even close :( the mandelbulb looks like global illumination, that looks like shiny plastic phong shading.

@Skywriter: Yes, that's true. But Pentium wanted a mandelbulb generator for Irix.

I think these global-illumination-renderings have been done with "Ultra Fractal 5".

mandelbrot zooming is a great escape, xaos is great for that. i'm amazed at what a netbook can do with it.

with 3d you can go mandel-spelunking, but it's so slow.
