My IP Address|
Ever wondered what the IP address of your

trees, which you can then move around to customise your forest image.

Step back into the '60s with this Retro Lava Lamp simulation. Blobs of coloured liquid wax rise and fall in a column
of clear liquid, driven by the warmth of a bulb in the base of the lamp. Totally psychedelic and groovy.
Blue and pink tendrils of electrical energy stream like miniature lightning bolts from the central element to

to attract the filaments.
