RUBE

An automaton in the genre of esolang by Chris Pressey, Cat's Eye Technologies, 1997

Esowiki: RUBE

RUBE is an esoteric programming language in tribute to Rube Goldberg, with bulldozers pushing around numbered crates, knocking them together to perform computations. It is based on a variant of a cellular automaton called a bully automaton, where certain state changes can force other state changes to occur elsewhere in the playfield.
