Electric Sheep

The Electric Sheep screensaver features morphing abstract animations called "sheep" that are formed collaboratively by thousands of users around the world, and their computers. Users can vote for the animations, created by all participating computers, using the up and down arrow keys on the keyboard, and thereby influence the evolution of the flock. Also, users can optionally design their own sheep and submit them to the gene pool.

*  When only a few of the virus scanners detect a problem with a file, this usually indicates a false alarm. While we simply cannot guarantee the safety of any file for 100%, we review them all carefully and report false positives to the anti-virus companies.

This works incredibly well:)

by Frances on April 15, 2016

Setup was a little confusing and I had to make it the default SS before it would appear at all, but it works well for me and it supports dual-monitors with either cloned images or independent images. Speed is adjustable via FPS setting.

by John on January 6, 2016

It did not work after down loading and I am not willing to wait hours for it to work. I think its a joke.
