Visualizing hyperbolic symmetries using WebGL (aka a hyperbolic doodler in your browser)

I’ve long been fascinated by non-Euclidean tessellations and symmetries. The most widely known examples of these are the circle limit images by M.C. Escher.  I’ve always wanted to create an interactive way of producing these images, and with the advent of WebGL I’ve made some preliminary steps to doing this in the browser.
