control a strange squid-like star pattern with the mouse

Here you control a pattern made using some of the algorithms from my movies in the "Math in Motion" section of this site. When you click the mouse a permanent trace of the pattern appears using the parameters you set in the textfields. Try different colors (entered as a string of six hex digits like "ffee99" but without the quotes) in the low and high acceleration fields to see different effects. Use the update button to make your changes take effect.
