Demonstrates flocking capabilities of a swarm network: each “dumb” particle is programmed with behavioral simple logic to align with neighboring particles and avoid set obstacles. This swarm of 200 particles become a “superorganism” much like a slime mold, ant colony, flock of birds, or a fish vortex.
Rendering shows the paths created by each particle that avoids the red orbs and eventually align together at the end. Software: Maya+brainbugz plugin
