The Dragon Curve is a fractal pattern that can be made by folding a piece of paper. The angle of each fold is usually 90 degrees. This animation shows alternative fold angles, starting at 0 degrees and sweeping through to 360.

The figure is made of 2^20 = 1,048,576 folds. In the beginning, the "paper strip" is completely unfolded. As we approach 180 degrees the figure starts to shrink in size until it is only 1 unit long. This requires a lot zooming!

For an explanation of the "standard" dragon curve, see Numberphile's video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCyC-K...
