Boids are a computer-simulated flock of little creatures that live in your iPhone/iPod. Based on Craig Reynolds' famous algorithm, Boids show how complex behavior can emerge from very simple rules. You can make your Boids act like a flock of soaring birds, a school of darting fish, or a herd of lazy ungulates just by changing a few simple parameters like "independence", "individuality" and speed.

The Boids will also respond to your touch. Your finger can be a tempting apple or a scary kitten. Tilt your iPhone/iPod, and the Boids will react to the change in gravity.
