Conway’s Life game in a continuous environment

    The German scientist Stefan Rafler created an interesting modification of "Life" - a cellular automaton, invented in 1970 by John Conway, in which, instead of a discrete rectangular grid, life develops in a continuous environment. The "cells" in it are in the form of disks, gliders can fly in any direction and drive round dances - a completely bewitching picture is obtained.

    Here is a slide show with a brief description of the algorithm, a document with a deeper immersion in the details and sources .
