Extending Life to non-square baords

by pstemari on Mon Jul 05, 2010 1:52 pm

I've been thinking about how to extend the Game of Life with triangular, pentagonal, and hexagonal boards that can connect with each other and the existing square boards. This would allow you to build up all sorts of complex shapes, such as the Platonic solids and many of the Archimedean solids.

I've got a few sketchs for LED layouts on Google Docs. Any thoughts? The rules around the centerpoint and the electrical protocol on the edges will need some adjustment. It would be rather cool if two adjoining boards could negotiate which line to use for transmit and which for receive.
