I made another imaginary machine 😂

It looks like a pager and runs a 1D cellular automata with 4 rules operating on a 16 cell tape.

I wanted to design a machine that would display on a LCD screen or even simple LEDs. The idea is to latch the tape on a GPIO port so you can write arduino-like applications on the run, standalone.

I'm pretty happy with the output idea but I'm not sure what to do about input. Also not sure about the whole design, but it's kind of ridiculous, kind of familiar, kind of weird hahaha

Here's a simulator, run the engine by pressing "q":
