Wallpaper Images

I have written some software based on 3D rendering algorithms for generating somewhat surreal scenes of massive floating chrome balls floating over a multicolored terrain made from boulder sized cubes and even more massive reflecting pools and blocks. The pixels of background images are used for coloring each block, in various "secret ways" which cause the most aesthetically pleasing effects.

I must thank "SuperJer" for some of the original ideas and algorithms, however I extensively rewrote them to handle very large mapping objects with the eventual goal of individual pixels instead of each "large block" that currently is rendered. That kind of detail takes a very large amount of memory even with more efficient storage methods, and will also require massive processing, which is currently being done on an Alienware computer using an Intel Core i7 CPU with 8 processing cores and very fast memory, etc.
