Teb's Conway's Game of Life

Conway’s Game of Life is a classic. Invented by John Conway in 1970, the “zero player game” is a wonderful example of emergent behavior. Although each cell follows the same simple rules, wonderful patterns emerge. As time went on, the Game was shown to be Turing Complete, meaning any program could be represented as an initial state to Conway’s Game of Life given a large enough grid. That’s incredible!

Game Modes

In all of these simulations clicking, swiping, and clicking/dragging will add life to the simulation. In all the pages with a single simulation, pressing z will pause and play the simulation.

Thanks for making it all the way to the bottom! If you enjoyed this project, please consider joining Teb's Lab on Patreon or click the pig to buy me a cup of coffee.
