About this project

This project is an interactive implementation of Conway's Game of Life implementation for Arduino Esplora + LCD Screen.

Features:

  • You can randomize new states using the slider to control the proportion of dead/alive cells.
  • You can use the joystick to select a single cell and change the state of that cell between alive / dead.
  • You can advance state by state manually or leave it to do it automatically.

I am a big fan of cellular automata and am quite new in the world of Arduino. The motivation behind this project is purely academic. Hopefully it will be of use in classrooms.

If you have feedback, I would love to hear it.

Code
