Video Cellular Automata Kit – Make magazine
VideoThing, a great resource on the subject of video art (including hardware), has announced an interesting contest to find the best implementation (through design or circuit bending) of the curiously sweet Video Cellular Automata Kit from MAKE magazine. For emergent pattern enthusiasts, such as me, the kit might well have arrived through a dream capsule – I just wish there was a PAL version! To get the lowdown on CA’s our faithful accomplice wikipedia will get you started, CA’s also featured in one of my imaginary battles many iterations ago (check out the links on that post for more digital golem goodness). The MAKE magazine kit requires a little soldering and case building plug it into your NSC TV and immerse yourself in discreet system animatronics; and at last a good reason to own a TV!
