Darwin’s Ring

Darwin’s Ring

Multiple tips arrived this week directing us to a rather amazing design: FluidForm’s Evolve Ring Silver, designed by Michal Piasecki and Krystian Kwiecinski. Not only does this item look very attractive, it also has a scientific heritage: The design was machine generated by Artificial Intelligence software, specifically a genetic algorithm. GAs use simulations of reproducing generations to gradually “evolve” a solution.

Piasecki and Kwiecinski designed a GA specifically to produce such rings and this is their result.

But it doesn’t end there. This GA is evidently to become part of Fluid Forms’ standard service. In other words you’ll soon be able to use the GA as a “ring configurator” to generate a unique ring of your own! They say this is mass customization, and it is.

But it’s also Customized Evolution. Your solution, grown in seconds.
