The algorithm that generates the image is called 'Langton's Ant' and is known as a cellular automaton.
The background itself is based on a program written to produce live concert projections for Seattle based musician VOX MOD.

Well, this is a collection of cellular automata - fields of cells which live by certain rules. At this point LivingCells is able to simulate not only the famous Game Of Life, but also its colored variant, a family of cellular automata called Generations, which includes widely known Brian's Brain, and also Turmites family, the best-known example of which is Langton's ant.
This is not a game per se because it doesn't require any input from the player. But it is possible to affect how cells live by adjusting rules, creating new cells or dragging groups of existing ones.
This aplication is designed to run on any device with Android 2.1 or higher, including tablets.
- Four types of cellular automata
- Possibility to set a rule for each type and also to enter your own rules
- Interactive field allowing to create and erase cells or to drag existing cells. Switch between adding and erasing with a longpress. Simulation pauses by default, but this is now adjustable
- Customizable look and feel for the cells: either select one of the preinstalled themes or create your own
- Application can be used as a live wallpaper
Try Star Wars rule in Generations - my friends liked it a lot!
Due to requests from the users, live wallpaper functionality has been added. Settings for the wallpaper are set separately from the settings of the standalone application. I should note that the computation of every next grid state requires CPU resources depending on the speed and the grid size. I advise not to set small cell size or fast speed for the wallpaper to avoid power drain.
You can also set the grid type to Turmites, this is the only automaton which doesn't demand much resources regardless of the speed and cell size settings. Moreover, Turmites look better when cells are small and speed is high.
You can leave your requests at my blog (see developer's info).

Lucid dreaming is learning to know you are dreaming, while you are dreaming. Becoming aware that you are dreaming allows you to shape, influence and direct your dreams with clarity, instead of being uncritically controlled by them. This app will train you to achieve lucidity in your dreams and understand them better by revealing their patterns.
When you are aware of being in a dream, you can also learn to master experiences that aren't possible in waking reality. You can fly, breathe under water or whatever else you put your mind to. With the sensations as real as in waking life. Your mind is the only limit.
It is reported that lucid dreaming can also help to overcome nightmares, be used to rehearse success for real life scenarios and be used train creativity.

This app is inspired by the Rorschach Test, which was invented in 1921 by Hermann Rorschach, a psychiatrist from Switzerland.
Using interpretation of "ambiguous designs" to assess an individual's personality is an idea that goes back to Leonardo da Vinci and Botticelli.
French psychologist Alfred Binet had also experimented with inkblots as a creativity test, and, after the turn of the century, psychological experiments where inkblots were utilized multiplied, with aims such as studying imagination and consciousness.
