Mandelbrot the Fractal Bear


Continuing my mutant teddy bear theme, a gift for my brother: the fractal bear. 

His name is Mandelbrot.

UPDATE! People who are asking me about buying a fractal bear of their very own, see here

  17. Sadly, this reminds me of the last panel in this comic: http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=164

    The horror. The HORROR!

  18. Please make a giant one with a few thousand branches - a task worth dedicating your life to!

  19. Hilarious and absolutely made my day! Actually it would be "L-system with n=2 the Fractal Bear" but it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue does it.

  21. I'd love to buy a Mandelbrot bear, so please let me know if you ever go into production. You could advertise them in Discover and Science News. They're wonderful.

  27. I have turned this into a monster for Dungeons and Dragons. Please tell me if I got the credit line correct. http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=8290906&postcount=8

  28. DracoDei - that is pretty great! Mind if I post a link to it? As to the credit line, it seems fine to me. My actual name is Mouse and the blog name is Buttons for Mouse, so arguable "sewn by Mouse at Buttons for Mouse" or something to that effect would make more sense, but it doesn't make much of a difference.

  29. I hope this isn't a double-post, but I would be grateful if you would link it actually.

  36. When I first heard about those "Build-A-Bear" stores I thought they actually let kids add the arms, legs and head. What a great opportunity for childish creativity and adult irreverance! Sadly, they just get to dress the damn thing. More programming for the consumer society.
