Stephen Campbell - Striangles - The concept of cellular automata was originally discovered in the 1940s by Stanislaw Ulam and John von Neumann while they were contemporaries at Los Alamos National Laboratory. While studied by some throughout the 1950s and 1960s, it was not until the 1970s and Conway’s Game of Life, a two-dimensional cellular automaton, that interest in the subject expanded beyond academia. In the 1980s, Stephen Wolfram engaged in a systematic study of one-dimensional cellular automata, or what he calls elementary cellular automata; his research assistant Matthew Cook showed that one of these rules is Turing-complete. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cellular_automaton inspired by cellular automata and game theory, Igor and I adapted the game of squares onto a hexagonal grid. http://www.smcampbell.eu/interactive/striangles
