# Generalized Mobile Automata

Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

A generalized mobile automaton starts with an active cell. Depending on the color of that cell and its nearest neighbors, it chooses a color for the active cell on the next step, as well as whether the active cell will move to the left, right, or straight down, or if it will split into two parts, three parts, or disappear completely.
