AVR Based Cellular Automata Video Synthesizer

05/29/2010 Category: AVR, Digital, Display, Game, Project

This self-contained cellular automata video synthesizer project built using the Video Critter Mini, an AVR based video board that can be used to generate simple graphics on an NTSC television. You can make a complete 1-D cellular automata demonstration by adding 3 pots and a button. The project cost around $50.

“The three knobs allow the cellular automata to be adjusted in some fun ways. The knob on the left controls the width of the board, from 1 cell to 32 cells. The center knob is used to select one of the 256 possible rules. And the knob on the right controls the iteration speed”, said the designer.
