10:15 --- Revisiting the Game of
Life --- CH Ting
"A while ago, I saw a very nice game of Life display in
one of my favorite electronics shops,
Anchor Electronics, at 2040
Walsh Ave in Santa Clara. It is a 16x16 LED panel, showing many sequences of
the game of Life from different starting patterns. I was surprised at how well
the display runs with only a 16x16 display. I will try to recreate it and show
it in the meeting. I hope members will bring their own implementations to the
meeting to share."
