de Jong, Gerald

Gerald de Jong has been active building tensegrities for years. He created Fluidium, a virtual world with virtual creatures that evolved a la Karl Sims. The artificial life was based on tensegrity structures, also known as elastic interval geometry.

de Jong's "elastic interval geometry" (EIG) was inspired by the concept of tensegrity, and was elaborated with assistance from Karl Erickson, Russell Chu, and other first power users of his Struck Java EIG application.
