Electric Sheep Screen Saver for OS X

updated 01:25 pm EST, Thu January 5, 2006

Electric Sheep for OS X today released for Mac OS X. Electric Sheep, created by Scott Draves, is a free, open-source screen saver run that 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." Version 2.6.4 delivers smooth animation with no delay between movies, options to randomly choose the next or replay the last sheep (using the right/left arrow key), and more. It is free and runs on Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
