Endorphin is very interesting amiation software, as you sad it's making calculation in real-time (or allmost real-time) with all data retargeting with respect to human muscle, like this:

but I don't know how they done this with genetic algoritm - isn't it too slow for real-time computation?

And I never saw a demo with character walking on bumpy terrain ;)
