WHAT IS IT?

An experiment on very random cellular automata

HOW IT WORKS

Each patch changes its color depending on the color of its neighbors

HOW TO USE IT

Click add a cell then click on the grid to create some new white cells. Choose of the functions in the functions selector, then click go forever to see the animation that each function produces on your initial state (the position of initial white cells). You may want to click on step to follow a step by step execution of the algorithme.

THINGS TO NOTICE

Function 1 : form a round shape of white cells and start the simulation. If the cells don't spread, stop the simulation and try again by adding more white cells, always in a rounded shape. A few cells (20 to 30 cells) should be enough. The cells spread all around.

Function 2 : don't turn any cell on, start right off with a black grid and click go forever. The screen will look like a circuit board, except it is red. After less than 500 ticks you should see a white cells explosion coming from a random place that invades all the screen in 10 ticks or so. This doesn't always happen. If it's the case, keep the go forever button toggled and click the clear button. This will reset the screen and keep the simulation going. If nothing happens in less than 500 ticks you may try again until you see that white cell explosion.

Function 3 : Keep the simulation button toggeld and add cells on the go. They will move like an animated worms and then die in a matter of some ticks. The celles look like a living organisme. I didn't manage to get them fill the screen.

Funciton 4: Don't add any cell, just start the simulation on a blank screen. You should see a red screen after 2 or 3 ticks only, with white cells and a few green cells. The green cells are like microbes that white cells, like antibody, try to kill. After a few ticks all the green cells are killed by the white ones. But sometimes green cells win :)

Function 5 : Clear the field, draw a few cells, and clck on the step button this time. You will see that this kind of cells advance in one specific direction, not randomly in all directions. They go one direction for a certain amount of steps, and then they sort of "split", changing direction orthogonically and so on.

Function 6 : turn on some cells (5 to 10), then click go forever. After coloring all the grid, there are a couple of long animated curved lines of patches. The grid looks like a geographical map.

Function 7 : draw some shapes at different locations then click go forever and watch them burn.

Function 8 : Fill up the screen with another fuction (example function 2), then click the go forever button, wait for around 200 ticks then "let it snow, let it snow, let it snoooooow !"

Function 9 : Click on the go forever button and draw anything on the grid, a 3D effect should be appllied.

Function 10 : [...] applies a green contour to your drawings, giving it a funky neon style.

Function 11 : blinky blinky :) (one random patch at a time)

Function 12 : Draw something that looks like a vertical line, it's ok to doodle around a bit, then click go forever. Adjust the simulation speed and look at the moving objects. After a few seconds of observation and a little bit of imagination, you should be seeing a cylindric object, rolling from left to right around itself. If you'r lucky enough you may see a ballet dancer :)

Function 13 : Create some white cells and watch the curious living creature that results from it. The organisme seem to only develop from certain extremities it chooses randomly and grows very slowly, extending its 'arms' a little by little at each tick.

Function 14 : Create some white cells then click on the go forever button, a white marble square will appear with angular lines (black "nerves")

THINGS TO TRY

(suggested things for the user to try to do (move sliders, switches, etc.) with the model)

Comments and Questions

Some random cellular automata fun

Check the info section. There are 6 functions that demonstrate various rather randomly coded rules for patches. They change color based on the color of their neighbours. The results are quite different. Read the info section then choose one of the functions and follow the instructions given in the info section for that function.

Interesting, cool, fun!

This is cool, thanks for contributing it. Amazing how many new and different things can be done with CA. -Jim
