Genetic algorithm for insect/spider walking?

Hello, has anyone tried to do anything like this

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHV7fWvnn_0 (adaptable robot spider)
or
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99DOwLcbKl8 (one legged robot)

in both cases a genetic algo was used to allow the robot to learn to walk.

The results are uncanny, even for the one legged robot. At this point I'm interested in reproducing in software only, with a model.

Is AForge.NET suitable? Any starting pointers? :)

Thanks
Jim
