WTF is this?

The images you see on this blog are output from various Ulam spiral generators I built in Flash, Python and most recently using Arduino. Generally, each dot in an image represents a number with integer 1 at center. In addition to writing algorithms to test each number for primality within a set I have discovered that an infinite number of calculations can be performed to create new designs and animation algorithms. The simplicity and speed of these algorithms make them an ideal fit for embedded systems graphics, scientific, mathematical and artistic explorations.

Visualizing Modulo 1 through 6

Modulo 1 and 2...Pretty much what you'd expect from dividing things individually and then by 2s.

There is no rule that states we can only plot primes with Ulam's spiral. This is what happens when you perform n mod 3 as you plot each dot. Hmmm...

Same idea, only mod 4:

And it just gets better. Mod 6:
