Cool. Maybe they could've made them look more agile and less bulky if they divided the fitness value by energy expenditure.

Nick, as David said, this was not made using GH.  I posted it because it's a very interesting application of evolutionary principles. 

Phillip, my first reaction was similar to yours: How fun it would be to produce these using a multi-material 3d printer?

Daniel, thanks for the link.  I do have an itch to recreate or simulate something like this in GH.

I don't think GH and Galapagos were involved at all. It's just about digital evolution.

So on the video it says it was made with voxcad, but the tags say galapagos, how much of this was made using gh? was the sucess rate fed into gh, for galapagos to generate next generation?

Totally agree with Phillip, you really start to project personalities onto each of the creatures.   Really cool work.

Great work!

Paint two dots at the top on it. Then print them out of something soft and you will make millions.
