Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

(I think the author of the book Blade Runner is also the author of Do Andriods Dream of Electric Sheep?)

Electric Sheep is a free, open source screen saver run by thousands of people all over the world. It can be installed on any ordinary PC or Mac. When these computers “sleep”, the screen saver comes on and the computers communicate with each other by the internet to share the work of creating morphing abstract animations known as “sheep”. The result is a collective “android dream”, an homage to Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.

Above is a quote.  I watched this run during a training course I was at and it is Amazing!!!!  Not that watching a screensaver is a great way to spend time, but wow I was totally impressed.  Check it out!!!
