I was pretty blown away with this article:
http://acko.net/blog/how-to-fold-a-julia-fractal/

I have never before "visualized" math like that. It's an incredible way to actually see math, and it makes me wonder how long before technology like this will be utilized as an educational tool in schools.

The author of the site also talks a lot more about math (and more basic things like vectors and beziers) here:

I just took a glimpse at the site but even now I have to say that these are amazing animations. I will surely visit the site later again to read it through.

Mathematics is like sex.  Yeah it can produce practical results (either on purpose or by accident).   There's always more to learn.  Even if you're a natural, you only reach your full potential by practice, practice, practice.  And if you're not having fun doing it, then you're doing it wrong.
