EvoShape is an innovative new CAD tool that generates and evolves original styling concepts. Designers and consumers alike can create novel, aesthetically appealing and inspirational shapes in just a few minutes.

Genetic data-structures and simulated procreation are employed to create a highly intuitive concept. New shapes can be bred simply by selecting or scoring objects from successive populations.

Developed by Ian Graham at Loughborough University.
