*game of life*

I have to post something about John Conway.. he and the game of life have been mentioned many times in the Alife lectures I have been attending. The other week Max showed this great clip that I have found on youtube:

I just love the comment about cats. He’s my hero.

I also recently came across this cool AVR implementation of the Game of Life that could easily be adapted into a wearable.

ps. having trouble embedding youtube links on this blog, sorry about that. don’t know what I am doing wrong but wordpress keeps mangling the html, even when I try to hand edit it.
