Video Feedback

Last night I pointed my webcam to the TV and I was surprised by the complexity of the images generated. Later I found out this is called video feedback, and with the help of a mirror you can create colorful dancing fractals. This phenomenon, which essentially is a non-linear 2D map iterated at very high speed (30-60 Hz), has been extensively studied by mathematicians and physicists.
