What is Fractoscope?

Fractals are a geometric pattern that is repeated at ever smaller scales to produce irregular shapes and surfaces that cannot be represented by classical geometry. Fractals have infinite complexity and beauty and Fractoscope allows you to explore these landscapes with your finger tips.
