algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Swarm Simulation -- Self propelled particles -- Ants and Fish

Hi there,
using Grasshopper in Rhino 5, I made a little script to simulate the behaviour of an "ant colony" moving in a certain boundary. It is possible to switch between completely uncoordinated, random movement and completely coordinated swarm movement (as observed in fish swarms)
Have fun watching :D

In the next Step I want to add an environment of "food sources" and "predators"... hope to find the time soon
