Sitting at the back of Grant Skinner’s session at ‘Flash on the Beach’ a few weeks ago i got my cellular automata classes out and did another visualisation with them. It’s really nice that they’re so easy to use, I can bash something like this out with in just a couple of hours. Again, just click the wee arrow to get going:
OK, not the most astonishing work, it would really be nice to push the envelope a bit further with it. Putting autonomous objects in a controlled environment is obviously going to be a rich vein for software, visualisations, experiments and games for the foreseeable future and I’m currently wondering quite how we can use that stuff in interesting new ways.
