Conway’s Game of Life

While doing a lot of gaming / puzzle research on how we could approach new strategies for interaction within the project, a fellow student turned me on to “Conway’s Game of Life”.  Funny, as I had just done a “Game of Life” cellular automata patch in Max / Jitter, so the crossover potential became immediately apparent.  If you have no idea what “Conway’s Game of Life” is, this video is a great place to start.

Also, a great desktop version that allows you to set your own “Game of Life” scenario:
