A robust implementation of a random walking point through three dimensions. A loop construct instantiates a series points, each offset from the last using a 3D vector accelerating in random directions.

MOUSEOVER newly placed points (the head) to give a random spin to an offstage color transform modifier.

The coiling effect is achieved through a simple tween of the instantiated point object. To keep things reasonable, each point eventually reduces in scale and removes itself after 2 seconds.

Although the transformation vector is determined at random, the point attempts to stay within the main stage using simple boundary checking.

The stacking and scaling effects of this module were adopted from their original implementation within the Lorenz Attractor.
