I seriously cannot believe that this is ... an equation.

I wrote a Prim maze generator in SVG once.

What's the equation?
Hopefully it is simpler than the prime number equation I found.
It had 26 variables with 14 smaller equations combined into a large mess.

Have fun!

Just x and y.

mod ({sin(10^5L(ceil(x),ceil(y)))<0:x,y},1)<=0.2

Maybe at some point I will figure out how to do some variations.
Perturbing it a bit with some noise gave it a cool, creepy alien look.

I wrote a maze generator for the Atari VCS / 6502 :)
1KB of ROM and 128 bytes of funky-RAM (read address was different than
the write address)

And exactly how old were you when you wrote THAT?

And how did you get it coded onto a commercial ROM cartridge for the Atari
system?

I wanna hear this story   :)
