The Game of Life in hardware - it makes touch input seem boring. To see how much fun it is view the video of the table being built and being used.
The evil mad scientists at Evil Mad Scientist have put together the ultimate Game of Life - in hardware.
Its a table with modules and LEDs switched by a microcontroller. When its switched on it computes updates using the rules of life and as a result you can see the cells die and come to life and watch as the patterns develope.New configurations can be input by touching the table.
See the video to get an idea of how much fun it is!
