|Windows software designed to allow children to produce abstract and fractal patterns from simple shapes and operations. Shapari offers 5 levels of difficulty, allowing children to challenge their visualization abilities by matching computer generated patterns. (See the Shapari pattern archive.) Curvay uses a pair of periodic waves guiding a point to make patterns that range from figure 8's and spirals to Spirograph patterns and Lissajous figures. (See the Curvay gallery.)|
