Recursive Doodling with Strangely Attractive Orbitals

Each variation is created by changing some constants used by the recursive function that generates these pictures. There are 9 different functions to play with. The darker the dot, the more common it occurs. You can interact with the drawing object the following ways:

Press 1 to 9 to change the formula used to draw the points (there are 9 variations to choose from)

Type "X" to randomise the constants

Press the Space key to cycle through some presets

Click and drag to create rect to 'zoom' into. Press the shift key while holding down the mouse to move the rectangle rather than resize it.

Press "Z" to zoom back out

Press "C" to capture the current settings to a 'preset' (Author mode only)
