weirdest CA

I assume you know what a CA (cellular automaton) is? If not check here.
In these automata you usually have one rule which govers the entire grid and each cell obeys to the same rule.
Here I changed this dramatically. Each cell is not only using the states of the neighbors to determine it’s next state but it also uses these inputs as rules. This is fairly complicated to do, and requires a lot of strange encodings, but teh result is very interesting. I have never seen so strange and complex patterns. Please click on the CA a couple of times to see the effect different encodings have on the evolution of this weirdest class of CAs.


You need the right java plugin and security flags. I recommend Firefox as the browser
