Duality have finished his project where he squeezed Game of Life in to 20×4 character LCD. We used to see such games on graphical LCD where cells can be represented as pixels. Here on char LCD cells are represented as custom characters. So not many of them are visible on screen. But it works fine and you can track the evolutions normally.
Project is based on Arduino Uno using custom expander to connect LCD. The rest is code which is really nicely written and commented.
