This is a display based on Conway's game of life / cellular automata.
It has very simple
rules. Start with a board. Then check each area. If the area has no
current cell and there are three or more adjacent cells, a new cell is
created. If the area has a cell and less than two or more than three
adjacent living cells, it dies (starvation / overpopulation).
This page starts with a smilie face and starts the process. You can see
where new cells are created, when they die, etc. Every few seconds a blob
of some sort is splattered onto the game board. This should shake things up
by knocking around living stable structures and creating more nodes for
animation of some sort.
