Goofing off with Chrome Experiments

I was goofing around the yesterday with the Chrome browser experiments. There are many interesting JavaScript tools/toys that run only in Chrome. Several are simple but interesting drawing/painting tools with some fun brushes.
In the end I was quickly able to throw together some fun ‘orbiting’ and rotating spheres. I shot the Quick and Dirty Planetary System posted below. I will experiment more with the parameters in the rotation scripts and do some slightly different textures tonight.

In case others are interested: Here are some textures I did very quickly in Chrome’s Sketchpad and Harmony experiments (both of whom ONLY work out of the Chrome browser).
Here are the links to the tools I used:

Chrome (You must be in this browser to use the experiments)
Harmony *
*Each has Save function that opens image in separate browser tab, from which you right click in the image to choose Save Image As ... In Win 7... other systems will be similar.  I also used GIMP, and Frapps and Sony’s Vegas Movie Studio.
