Spikey/wheely turtle path from Thue Morse sequence

Numberscope is an online tool, designed for researchers, hobbyists and artists, to visualize integer sequences.  Integer sequences arise in all areas of mathematics and science, and they can have all sorts of interesting properties:  factorization properties, statistical properties, even fractal self-similarity.  These properties lend themselves to visualization.

In Numberscope, one can combine a favourite integer sequence (say, chosen from the On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences), with ready-made interactive visualization tools.
