Watch as Zen Mandelbrot creates stunning fractal imagery on your computer display! Designed for Windows 7, but will also run great on Vista and XP.

Some screen savers just show a slide show of a limited number of images and can quickly get rather repetitive, but Zen Mandelbrot will continue to find new and interesting sections of the Mandelbrot Set, creating works of fractal art automatically while your computer sleeps. The images are guaranteed to surprise and delight as no two slides are ever the same and colors continue to morph and shift.

Several customization settings are available to help you fine tune the range of images that will be shown. Adjust color palettes, design complexity, fractal types, texturizing and shadowing all to your liking.

Any image that is created can be saved instantly by pressing the [F12] (print) key, without interrupting the show. You can even interact with the screen saver by pressing the [+] key to zoom in, or [-] to zoom out.

Patterns will emerge as fast as your computer can perform, but if you wish to limit CPU usage to save power, or just have the screen saver take a break after a while, options are available to limit the maximum CPU usage, or to lower usage after a given amount of time (like after your monitor is set to turn off).
