Stellar Lavarand

Remember lavarand, SGI’s amusing toy where they used lava lamps to generate randomness you could download on the web? Some crazy people think they can make a business of this, only using the solar wind, the clouds of Venus, the Northern Lights, Jupiter’s shortwave emissions and other cosmic events as their random source.

Just like lavarand, this causes a moment of “oooo, shiny”, rapidly followed by “but why would I want someone else to see my randomness?”. So, kids, feel free to point and laugh at anyone foolish enough to use this service for anything real, but don’t try it at home.
