Here are some “4D animated” and 3D printable structures built from a range of cellular automata strategies including “Game of Life” from Wetware Ontologies:

I have a soft spot for the immaterial & imperceptible rendered visible via rapid prototyping (see 3D printed molecular machines) and thanks to the ability of contemporary digital art suites and programming languages like Processing, Rhino, Python and Blenders ability to (for the most part) communicate with one another that reality is accessible to anybody with the time and inclination (and MakerBot lying around).

When cellular automata (CA) are brought beyond 2D cells you don’t just get a 3D object but in effect a 4D visualisation – how a colony of cells moves in time as well as space….

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
