The Sierpinski Triangle is an interesting geometric pattern formed by connecting the midpoints of the sides of a triangle. When you do this, you create 4 other triangles. You then "delete" the middle bottom triangle, leaving three smaller triangles whose sides could then be connected, and so on, and so on. In your imagination, you could repeat this infinitely many times. Try the Java demonstration below.
