A great example of the interaction of random variation and selection to provide evolution of a population, using simple robots. In many ways it is a pity that time and money limitations restricted the robotic evolving tadpoles ( tadros) to less than a dozen generations, but even these limited results show how the random variations can kick an evolving organism off the best course in the fitness landscape, while lack of the same prevent selection from being able to operate.
