This application is a laboratory for the creation of automata. An automaton is a system of circles moving relative to one another in a hierarchical fashion which create cruves which are a superset of epicycloids and hypocycloids.

Description from the Publisher
This application is a laboratory for the creation of automata. An automaton is a system of circles (actually planar coordinate systems) moving relative to one another in a hierarchical fashion. That is, every circle in the system except one will be rolling along the circumference of one other circle at every moment in time. Automata are a superset of the mathematical curves called epicycloids and hypocycloids.

Visualize a 3-dimensional golden-rectangular-solid that is analagous to the 2-dimensional golden-rectangle, which can be sub-divided recursively so that each left-over rectangular solid has the same proportions as the original rectangle.

This application demonstrates the curious relationships wherein a tetrahedron can be inscribed in a cube in two different ways and a cube can be inscribed in a dodecahedron in 5 different ways.
