Submission + - First Hardware to go through Evolution Developed

Masq666 writes: A Norwegian team has made the first piece of hardware that uses evolution to change its design at runtime to solve the problem at hand in the most effective way. By turning on/off its "genes" it can change the way it works, and it can go through 20-30,000 generations in just a few seconds, that same number of generations took humans 8-900,000 years.
