John Goatstream has posted a video titled Flexible Muscle-Based Locomotion for Bipedal Creatures
on Vimeo, showing the results from a self-learning program that explores different gaits for bipedal creatures. In addition to showing the fruits of serious research for the good people at the Siggraph Asia 2013 conference, it has some hilarious walking creatures.
