FlockMaker: Simulator for Collective Motion

How is a group of dancers like a school of fish, a flock of birds, a swarm of insects, or a culture of bacteria? In all of these situations, individuals follow certain rules of movement, leading to the rise of interesting collective patterns on the group level. This simulator allows you to experiment choreographically with a room full of virtual dancers, assigning them different rules to see what patterns emerge.
