Critters & Emmiters
The simulation here represents a study for demonstrating the adaptability measure for dynamic systems - vagile biological systems. Two emitters are placed onto a 2D simulation environment. The red emitter represents a heat source generating 100°C of heat from its centre which decreases in temperature. The blue emitter represents a cooling source radiating cold temperatures of -100°C from its centre. This experiments is part of enhanced Virtual Environments (eVE).

Use the mouse to move the emitters around and you will notice some emergent behaviours as the critters seeks for heat and cold.
