Planestate is a extremely configurable electropaint(tm) inspired 3d screensaver that shows an endless helix of whirling colors mix, twist and turn to form a never ending display of hypnotic and meditative motion patterns. The screensaver can create a patter that fits your every emotional state. It can create everything from fast spinning hypnotic, mesmerizing motion patters with colorful blended planes to slowly moving relaxing lines that makes you calm down and set your mind at rest. Because of the extensive configuration screen only your imagination limits you what can do. Just remember that the beauty in this screensaver isn't in the still pictures it generates. Its in the motion the planes takes from place to place.

Electropaint is a US Trademark of Tristram Visual
