Nice idea using recursion (I especially like the Mandelbrot idea)! =P Very colorful too. Nice start!

I agree with RHE. I like the recursion idea. What you might want to do is try to do is make it so its not so "processor dependent" in that it takes a few good seconds for it to zoom in. other than that, i think this could turn into a sweet maze/surfing game if you so wish.

I wanted to develop an interactive flight through the mandelbrot set. But unfortunately the calculations are too expensive :-(

Not enough for a fly-through, but maybe there are some possible improvements. On my machine (MacOS X 10.5.5 on Intel), the following change helps. Replace: this.image.setColor(colPeriphery); this.image.drawLine(x, y, x, y); with this.image.setColorAt(x, y, colPeriphery); This will be highly dependent on the actual system's graphics subsystem, so I am not sure whether you get similar results on other systems. But on my machine that was faster by a factor of about 3.
