Batman-adv powers Game of Life

Added by Simon Wunderlich almost 10 years ago

We all love our blinking routers when they happily exchange our data. One of the things we have definitely not thought of while designing batman-adv: These LEDs can even have a higher meaning! Sean McIntyre and Jonathan Kiritharan created this nice Conway’s Game of Life implementation on 8 routers based on OpenWrt and batman-adv. Enjoy this fine art project!

More details, source code and a video can be found on the project page: http://www.boxysean.com/portfolio/mesh4lyfe/
(BTW, also Hack A Day featured this project: https://hackaday.com/2012/02/04/using-routers-as-displays/ )

Thanks for this wonderful hack!
