I must share with you this delightful link of incredible artificial creatures, powered by the wind and made by a man who is probably insane but unquestionably brilliant: [click] Click the link below the photo where it says [film]. This is amazing, I can't believe the robotics guys haven't picked up on this yet... This man uses genetic algorithms to evolve these stunningly smooth and complex structures, which he then builds out of PVC and tape. It's definitely worth a few minutes of your time.

And if you're into bioinformatics and alternative energy, this link is certainly for you. It's for anyone who likes biology, or computer science, or complexity, or systems thinking, or anything related to the above. Just read it, mmkay?? Although I suppose if you don't want to read that, you can read the "Constructive Biology" issue of Edge Magazine.
