noit o' mnain worb is a probabilistic particle automaton that uses pressure between randomly moving particles to approximate the behaviour of circuits. It can approximate computation with these circuits, too, but it's so lossy that it has more value as just a neat toy to watch.

(The name of this language contains a secret message! Can you find it?)
