Description

This kaleidoscope is an idea inspired by a Linear Algebra lesson about geometric transformations with matrices. It also grew out of an experiment with pure functions, Trigger, Locators, and the option LocatorAutoCreate.

Click anywhere while holding down the Alt key to add a new point. Try various options and play the animation. You can add additional points while it is active. Select "locators" to find the originals and move them around. You can delete a point by using Alt-Click on its locator.
