That animation reminds me of a similar thing I saw a couple of years ago where you watched a larger (but similar) animation of each kind of sort algorithm and it had sound that went with it.
Sorts are rather beautiful when looked at like that.

Fascinating - Seriously, I've been staring at the thing for like 10 minutes now. It's almost hypnotic.

A nice idea for an app would be an Algorithm Visualizer Screensaver, where it would simulate and visualize different algorithms.

Damn, that would be cool ... But I suck at graphics programming. :(

Welcome to the club. :(

I also suck at lambda expressions. I'd hate to try to visualise lambda functions. It'd put me on the lamb. :P

+1! That would make a great screensaver when you think about it. Be really cool to have it cycle through all the different algorithms. :)

Maybe a task for the Processing language?

It would also be cool if it grabbed real data from somewhere off the internet (like many distributed computing programs, such as SET@Home or Folding@Home) and sorted the lists. (c:
