This is EvoGrid The Movie, a short 3D animation depicting a whimsical hypothetical future "evolution machine" wherein an "artificial origin of life" occurs in a grid-computing simulator and then a select entity is re-rendered in a molecular nanofabricator and given a "swimming test" in a beaker of real chemicals formulated to correspond to the digital simulator. Will it survive and thrive? In "deep" EvoGrids of the future, life evolved in the crucible of a virtual world could then be released out into the universe, going where no Earth life has gone before (and where we may then follow).
