I was working on a program to make branching curlicue designs, when my kids came in and asked how the pictures were made. I explained that the computer follows directions based on the numbers you give it. I changed the maximum angle that the curls could bend at each segment, and these cool shapes started popping up.

Magic Tile is a free program (possibly for Windows only) that provides a large number of Rubik's cube variations in different geometries. Some of them are much simpler to solve than others, and viewing the different projections is fun in itself.
