Cool 3D Mandelbrot Renderings

Benoît Mandelbrot passed away recently. He was a mathematician known for his work with fractals. Indeed, he coined the term. I saw him speak once, and I got the impression that he was a bit of a kook. Whatever my impression, there is no question that his work was of great influence.

Here are some beautiful renderings of 3D fractal sets. Be sure to scroll down the page for the best ones. Quite spectacular.
