Turing-Complete

Despite its simplicity, Rule 110 is Turing-complete, as proven in Universality in Elementary Cellular Automata (Cook 2004). This implies that, in principle, it can simulate any calculation or computer program. Rule 110 is arguably the simplest known Turing-complete system.

Implementation

We have implemented Rule 110, in a similar approach to implementing Game of Life.
