This quick video reminds me of Bruce Sterling and Rudy Rucker's masterful short-story "Big Jelly," which appears in the former's "A Good Old-Fashioned Future" and the latter's sprawling "Gnarl!" anthology.

Cliff Pickover says it best: "Using simple algorithms and amazing ingenuity, creative woman develops higher-dimensional cybernetic jellyfish that evolve and may one day escape the confines of their digital life and communicate with humans as peers."

If you like this video, you'll be entranced by the flash game flOw -

In it you control a tiny marine organism that evolves and grows over time as you eat larger and more complex organisms.
