Comment on "Variations on NanoLife"
by Scott Stevenson — Feb 25
@Max: As far as describing the "Nano Spores", It seems that each spore just traces out a straightline between its original spot and another random spot on the circle

This is a good description of the algorithm, but I think trying to describe what it's like to watch it is hard to put into words. A dance of microscopic life forms?

So as far as "clever" geometry, its really not too complicated

I agree. What I meant is that it's a clever use of simple geometry.

The spheres themselves have a sort of velocity function that seems to have a constant curve

It's the kCAMediaTimingFunctionEaseInEaseOut timing function built into Core Animation.
