This video is the result of a work to the class of Evolutionary Computation in University of Coimbra.
The work was based on the work of Karl Sims, with these differences:

- Were included spheres;
- Were applied different fitness functions (mainly bridge and ball stages);
- We used NEAT (NeuroEvolution of Augmenting Topologies) to evolve their little brains;

For the simulation we used Breve (www.spiderland.org).

Special thanks to:
Cesar Gomes for the help given to link his python implementation of NEAT (http://code.google.com/p/neat-python) to Breve.
Penousal Machado for the initial steps.

"The designs found in nature are nothing short of brilliant, but the process of design that generates them is utterly lacking in intelligence of its own."
Daniel Dennett, NY Times 2005
