I am having trouble finding a post July 16, 2006 6:57 PM   Subscribe

I am having trouble finding a post to a cool web tool (java, maybe?) where you chose a parameter or some colors, then dragged your mouse around to make spline-y funky patterns. It seems it would have been especially useful to make cool mathy looking web backgrounds. I haven't the foggiest idea what search terms to even start with, and those I've tried have come up empty. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

At first I thought you meant Color synthAxis, then I just thought you were talking crazy nonsense.

Hmm, I'm just talking crazy nonsense apparently.

It's not so much a color picker as a semi-3d spline drawing weird tool... sort of a spirograph kind of thing? I don't know how to describe it... argh!

The first thing I thought of when reading this was a spirograph.
Here's the MeFi search results, maybe this FPP or this one - or the link in Wolfdaddy's comment - is what you're looking for.

Maybe this?

dhruva has found it almost exactly.. except that one seems locked to one kind of color/thing .. I think it's the same exact tool, but it used to have settings and whatnot?

that's it though!!

Thanks to dhruva for finding one of the ones on the site I was looking for, I was able to find the rest in this post.
