Electric Sheep Found in Wild

Magnetic Warp (Hypotrochoid) describes itself as
a novel technique for the visualization of magnetic fields. Two ferrofluid Hele-Shaw cells have been constructed to facilitate the imaging of magnetic field lines. We deduce that magnetically induced photonic band gap arrays similar to electrostatic liquid crystal operation are responsible for the photographed images and seek to mathematically prove the images are of exact dipole nature.
It sure looks like the Electric Sheep for example 165.29720, 198.07654 and many more. What's your favorite "magnetic" sheep?

I've always wondered if there were a physical process that modeled the sheep algorithm, for example fractal laser modes have another aspect, but I haven't seen the real thing yet...

Electric Sheep -i want one 4 my computer haw do i get it? thank u Posted by: TAMMY at October 2, 2008 02:51 PM
I'm working on using photography like this, but without ferrofluid filters. Posted by: David at October 3, 2008 02:24 PM
