This paper outlines the development of an open source generic hardware-based interactive Genetic Algorithm controller (Eugene) and explores contexts in which it may be deployed. The system was first applied to the generation of synthetic sound using MIDI and a simple analogue synthesiser with 27 continuous controller values. It was then applied in the area of image evaluation using an image enhancer program with 7 continuous controller values. The system was evaluated by experimental observation of users attempting various tasks with different success criteria. This led to the identification of issues, some of which were specific to, and others divorced from the application domain. These are discussed together with areas for improvement.
