Interactive web doodles will mesmerize you

If you like browsing CodePen for inspiration you'll love this gallery of interactive creative coding experiments at Each one is selected because it loads quickly, only requires a short attention span and is fun and satisfying to play with.

The doodles range from familiar geometric shapes and fractals to weird creatures you can control with your mouse and recursively grown plants.

We also think the site itself is wonderful with its pleasing hover effects and Swedish-inspired design style.

Here are some screen grabs from our visit:
