Electric Sheep– The Thinking Screen Saver


Electric Sheep is a free, open source screen saver created by Scott Draves. It’s run by thousands of
people all over the world, and can be installed on any ordinary PC or
Mac. When these computers “sleep”, the screen saver comes on and the
computers communicate with each other by the internet to share the
work of creating morphing abstract animations known as “sheep”. The
result is a collective “android dream”, an homage to Philip K. Dick’s
novel Do
Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
