Stripes
653

This experiment was initially started as an attempt to simulate light cycle effect introduced in the TRON movie. Then I noticed an interesting thing. Each and every stripe slowly but surely moves away from its origin point. That fascinated me because the rule of motion for these stripes is very simple - move forward, then choose turn left or right. In a larger scale (with low max and min speeds) with large amount of stripes it starts to look as some kind of growing bacteria or mold. So eventually I ended up with this simulation.

Tip: turn glowing off if you need to increase the performance.
