Project: Reading Time from Pictures of Analogue Clocks

The aim of this project is to read the time from pictures of analogue clocks. The project might be useful for young children trying to learn to read an analogue clock. More importantly, the network could easily be extended to any similar one- to three-handed gauge. This might make it easier to read a gauge accurately. It would also enable easy recording of gauge data.

Favorite 3-Color 2D Totalistic Cellular Automaton

Rule 562102068

This automata shows quite complex behavior. The automata does not repeat for at least the first 350 steps, probably longer, judging by the boundaries. If we just consider the middle section from the y direction in the first figure, it does not repeat for at least the first 550 steps. Most individual steps show regularity, however. The 3D figure also shows some regularity. Thus regularities in two dimensions build up in an irregular way to form a somewhat regular structure.
