Game of life - pattern

As many of you know and Wikipedia clearly explains:

The Game of Life, also known simply as Life, is a cellular automaton devised by the British mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970. The “game” is a zero-player game, meaning that its evolution is determined by its initial state, requiring no further input. One interacts with the Game of Life by creating an initial configuration and observing how it evolves.

Youtube userĀ Remco Veldkamp published a video about his DIY project on this pattern using Arduino. You can watch it below.
