Groovy Lava is a new screensaver and Winamp visualization plug-in created by NetPlay Software. Groovy Lava allows you to define an artificial cellular life form that will ooze into life with your favourite music or as your very own screensaver. Groovy Lava is based on chaos in which there are no well-defined mathematical formulas, only action and re-action, driven by a random process using the basic rules of life and death. At the heart of Groovy Lava is the chaos engine, which randomly selects a cell position and applies your life form rules. It is this random selection, along with the influence of the surrounding cells, that allows Groovy Lava to simulate many natural phenomena such as auroras, turbulent water flow, and fire. As the 'lava master', you can set the rules for the chaos engine, allowing it to create weird and wonderful images of beauty and chaos. It is also possible for the software to generate random life forms in time with your music, creating a unique trip into the world of cellular automation. There is no doubt that there are still many amazing life forms yet to be discovered, maybe you will be the first to discover a whole new way of life ?
