Boids


While this video illustrates, in spades, EPFL's cutting edge advancement of bots able to flock and land without crashing into one another, the real story in this post is the brilliant work of Craig Reynolds  making this behavior possible by developing Boids, the code enabling machines to flock, like birds, in real time.


To show how Boids can contribute to art, view Breaking the Ice, the classic CG love story showing how love conquers all in timeless fashion even though the animation was done way back in 1987.
