So what does 291 lines of WebGL shader code buy you these days? How about a full 3D fly-through of a fractal constructed ancient temple styled structure, with pulsating beams of light running up and down the vibrating columns. Add to that a fully raytraced sphere, accurately reflecting the environment it’s whisking through and liberally mix in a bunch of post effects and finish off with optional mouse controls.
Generators Redux by Kali is a new experiment over on Shadertoy, and nothing short of stunning in all of its GPU melting glory. And you will need a gaming-class GPU to experience this. But it’s well worth the trip. Be sure to check out some of his other fractal inspired shader toys while you’re there.
