Biomorphs are little "creatures" drawn with 9 simple integer "genes" and were invented by Richard Dawkins in his book The Blind Watchmaker.


You can watch a segment of a BBC show with Dawkins explaining the biomorphs. Love those CRT monitors!


Move the sliders to adjust the values of each of the genes.


Here is a quick JavaScript implementation of the original biomorph creatures. Click on any one of the images to select it as the parent of the next generation. Or, when you get tired of artifical selection, with a new set of random creatures.
