This patch generates Elementary Cellular Automata with different rules in [jit.gl.pix] (on the gpu). The texture is scrolling down adding a new layer on top for the next generation. An elementary ca is a one-dimensional cellular automaton with 2 possible states (1/0). Rules are notated as 8 bit values and for every cell (plus 2 neighbors) the nth bit determines if the next generation will live or die. Generating the CA on the gpu allows for high resolution renders while still maintaining 60 fps. A few 4k renders are included in the download as example.
