Elementary school kids and animation student illustrate evolution

Via PsiVid, check out this astounding animation illustrating evolution in an exceptionally clever manner. Tyler Rhodes, a student at Virginia Commonwealth University, drew a salamander-like creature, then asked elementary school students to draw a creature like his. He then took their results and asked more kids to draw creatures like those, and so on and so on, through six “generations”. He then animated the whole shebang.

Mesmerizing, no? I absolutely love this concept.

    I love the video. Thanks for sharing. This link is for a video I always loved in school. Animating scientific concepts has come a long way. Not that Bill Nye wasn’t great and all, but I’m excited for future works. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJyUtbn0O5Y&feature=related
