This is rocklife, Conway's Game of Life, a completely pointless plugin :-P
"The Game of Life is a cellular automaton devised by the British mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970. It is the best-known example of a cellular automaton.
The "game" is actually a zero-player game, meaning that its evolution is determined by its initial state, needing no input from human players. One interacts with the Game of Life by creating an initial configuration and observing how it evolves." (Wikipedia)
The initial configuration is a random pattern. The grid is computed modulo (i.e. exceeding a border means entering it on the opposite side). The age of a cell is shown by its colour.
* Play/Select: Next generation
* Up: Play/Pause
* Down: re-initialize grid
