If you like full terminal thingy, here are some of my own creations:

weave.sh '(((x % 5 + y % 11) % 2))'

I'm getting an error: ./pipes.sh: line 84: read: 0.013: invalid timeout specification

My mac came with:

GNU bash, version 3.2.48(1)-release (x86_64-apple-darwin12)
Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

which was causing the above "./pipes.sh: line 84: read: 0.013: invalid timeout specification"

Installing a later version of bash via "brew install bash" and running this script with the new version worked as expected:

"/usr/local/Cellar/bash/4.2.42/bin/bash ./pipes.sh"

anyone figured out how to play this fullscreen during a real screenlock (slock, xscreensaver, ...)? would be sweet

@cbrinker - Thanks for tip about using a later version of bash. I edited the files with #!/usr/bin/env bash and this did the trick.
