Technically and visually.

Usual Archee physics wizardry, and as amazing as ever ;)

It's very interesting how you incorporated the genetic algorithm. It was quite cute how the creature "chased" the butterfly with its clumsy movements. If anything I would've made it a bit shorter, but it's very good in it's current form already.

It really remind me this. In a time where most 4ks are the same raytracing demos, we see something sooo original and funny (I could hear the different shouts of people during the streaming when the creature catched the butterfly or epically failed, lol). This was a great surprise for a 4k that I never expected to see.

I cannot watch this without bursting into uncontrollable laughter ;D. The movements of that digital beast simply look too damn spastic and hilariously flailing ;D. Awesome! And I actually feel like the beast is mimicing the behaviour of a dog. Kinda. So that's pretty cute :D.

... Oh, and the fact that the guy's squeezed in physics and genetic programming and algorithmic music and stuff in 4k is also mindblowing :D.
