Drool. (http://www.skytopia.com/project/fractal/mandelbulb.html#renders)

Too many polys for my machine, though.

Awesome stuff.

The mathematical DNA of the Universe.

Love it.

looks like a zbrush sculpt with radial symetry turned on...

Pretty much what I was thinking... Yeah, I can do the same with cheats, but as long as the render looks good, who cares?

yeah, but can you zoom in indefinetely (they tried up to 10,000,000x) and still keep the details? :)

Art, is that robot from one of the old Lucasfilms games? Looks like the bot from Koronis Rift, but the wrong color...

Should be able to, the 2d mandelbrot has infinite detail.

JamesWillmot,
I know, but can the fake one done in zbrush do this? ;)

IgnusFast,
Close, I remember that game. The robot actually comes from an old Atari demo:

I have to do a project for an adv complex geometry class this next semester. Was going to do Riemann extensions to Schwartz Child geometry related to black hole accretion dynamics at the event horizon. However I think I just found a much funner project!

There's some extremely cool stuff done with this new class.

Now if I just find a practical reason to validate going this route for my project. I'll probably just have to go the route that its useful to the CG/VFX community somehow.

Damn, so close! I LOVED my Atari 800xl - even more than the C=64 for some reason. The versions of Koronis Rift and Rescue On Fractalus were just amazing on the Atari...
