Presenting Schrödinger's Game of Life

Saturday, February 07, 2015

We present Schrödinger's Game of Life, which is exactly what it sounds like: Conway's Game of Life meets Schrödinger's Cat.

Each individual cell in the playfield may be in one of three states: Alive, Dead, or Possibly-Alive-Possibly-Dead (which we call Cat.)

Put another way, it's a cellular automaton that incorporates non-determinism.

To see it in action and play with it in your web browser, you can go over to its online installation.

For a full account of its development, see its README document.
