Conway’s Webcam of Life: HTML5 Canvas, Webcam, and Video Effects #Javascript

Conway's Webcam of Life: HTML5 Canvas, Webcam, and Video Effects

Nathan Wilson has designed a version of Conway’s Game of Life using a webcam as a seed image.

Conway’s Game of Life “is a cellular automaton devised by the British mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970.” Yep, I’m quoting Wikipedia.

There are a lot of implementations of Conway’s Game of Life out there. I’d originally started by writing an implementation in Golang, and afterwards found a more graceful implementation here (in Javascript).

To me, what makes Conway’s Game of Life interesting is the initial state – and so Conway’s Webcam of Life was born.

If you have a webcam usable by a browser, you can check it out by going to this page.
