Interactive Evolution



GENIUS Bodybuilder is a tool for the evolutionary design of arbitrary closed surfaces that integrates seamlessly into the 3D-modelling process. In contrast to prevailing evolutionary tools it is not built on a proprietary object representation, but makes use of a deformative approach that can be applied to commonly used surface representations such as polygon meshes or NURBS faces.The current implementation GENIUS Sculptor is used to create individual avatars out of prototypes by shape blending and free form deformation.The next step Genius Creator will be concerned with the creation of arbitrary forms using embryology, L-Systems and Cellular Automata.
