, shows some of the experiments of computer science professor Ken Perlin.
Perlin is part of the Media Research Lab at NYU, http://mrl.nyu.edu/
, which covers many areas in computer graphics, visualization and human-computer interaction. Demetri Terzopoulos, another professor connected to the Lab, and his team "create physics-based virtual worlds inhabited by realistic artificial animals. These synthetic fauna possess muscle-actuated bodies, sensors, and brains with motor, perception, behavior, and cognition centers" according to the site
