Wolfram's Rule 110
In this experiment, the BioWall develops patterns produced
by evolution according to Wolfram's Rule 110. The visitor
can modify any cell state of the first column and thus evolve
the configuration of the patterns.

Evolving patterns
The implementation of Wolfram's Rule 110 involves a uniform onedimensional
cellular automaton. According to this rule, the automaton develops
patterns produced by evolution from any initial configuration. The
patterns obtained after many steps appear as particlelike structures
superimposed on a periodic background.
Instructions for use
In the BioWall implementation of Wolfram's Rule 110, the visitor can always
modify the on and off state of any cell of the first column to the
left, which is made up of 100 cells. In order to perform this change,
one of the second to the fifth membranes from the left must be pressed.
Each state change produces then an evolution of the configuration
which propagates to the right.
