Fraqtive

Fractals are patterns generated using mathematical formulae that are self-similar. That means that if you zoom in on the Mandlebrot set (shown on the left in Figure 18-3), for example, you’ll find the same shape repeats in its nooks and crannies, and you can zoom in again and again and again. Fraqtive is a program for exploring fractals and generating images. You can save the images and use them as wallpaper on your Raspberry Pi (see Chapter 4). The software has a tutorial to get you started.
