FractalMania is a screensaver that creates and displays fractal images while your Roku is idle. Unlike most screensavers that download images for display, FractalMania creates each image using your Roku's processor, building the image line by line until the fractal display is complete. The screensaver will display the created fractal for a few seconds and then start fresh with a blank screen. Example images are in the screenshots shown below.
The FractalMania description in the Roku channel store warns that the calculations required to create fractal images are intensive and that it may run faster on newer Roku devices.
