Richard Dawkins' Biomorphs

I'm not sure if many here realise, but the famed biologist Richard Dawkins developed some software called "Biomorphs" on an Amiga 1000 which simulates the process of biological evolution.

[ Show youtube player ] (Pertinent section from 26:16)

You can clearly recognise the platform used. Professor Dawkins confirms he developed this software himself, meaning he was technically an Amiga developer.

There are several modern versions of this software, but it started on the Amiga. It would be interesting to get hold of the original.

haha, that is a new one!

I think dawkins might be also an apple developer. I seem to remember seeing him saying somewhere how he didn't like the word processor on I think it was an apple II so he wrote his own is assembly. I guess he evolved an embiggened mutant brain.
