Game of Life Kit
In 1970, John Conway came up with a 1-player game called Game of Life, a mathematical game that simulates colonies that grow or die based on how crowded or lonely they are and is known for the way it creates a beautiful organic display out of randomness.
Here is a design, manufactured by Adafruit, for a simple electronic project that plays Conway's Game of Life. Make one kit and keep it on your desk, or attach multiple kit modules together to create a large display.
- Each kit displays a 4x4 grid (16 LEDs)
- Connect as many kits as youd like, in any configuration, to create a larger game board
- Runs off of 2 AA batteries (not included), but can be easily modified to run off of USB or wall-wart power
- On/Off button to save power, also for resetting the display
- Automatically resets if the colony has died or stagnated (regeneration)
- Backwards compatible with older versions
One randomly drawn winner will receive today's prize.
