It’s All In The Genes!
Here’s something that caught my interest. It’s a neat little flash page that I thought I should share. The simulation here generates a 2D vehicle with a frame and 2 wheels. This vehicle then has to navigate a jagged strip of terrain. Behind the scenes there is obviously some genetic code that maps to the creation of the vehicle and the vehicles which manage to drive further propogate their genes onto further generations. After a few generations you should end up with some slightly less zany looking vehicles that manage to get quite far across the level.
