GenLab Snakes

Once upon a time, a dear friend and colleague gave me a purple and green Rubik's Snake, a toy procured at a trade show. Upon examination of the toy, it was evident that the 3-Dimensional structure of the snake's 24 pieces could be coded into a 48 bit DNA string. The rest is history.
    GenLab Snakes Features:
  • A population of 1024 Virtual Snakes
  • Genetic algorithm with 5 Fitness Functions to evolve the population
  • 9 Small Snake windows. Each window can be independently rotated and zoomed
  • Full population statistics with auto-scaling histogram
  • Snake DNA Display and Direct DNA Entry
  • Large View Mode with two transparency modes
  • Snake Gallery of 20 cool Snakes which may be copied into the population
  • Population control: load, save, and randomize
  • The uncompressed bitmap image of the logo displayed in GenLab Snakes is larger than the executable file!
