Amsterdam variant of ‘boids’

This is my experimental attempt to create a boids-like algorithm in JavaScript and WebGL. It is very much a work in progress. These are a hundred (or more) bird-like creatures ('sijssies') displaying swarm intelligence. Occasionally, you may see a slightly bigger, red creature passing by. It is a predator. The sijssies are supposed to be very frightened of it, but that's one of the things I'm still working on.

Boids is a classic example of modelling swarm intelligence. The original idea was developed by Craig Reynolds in 1986.

Sijssie is Amsterdam lingo for a (small) bird.
