Instructions

RUN ON TURBO MODE (SHIFT+click green flag) so that the grid at the start can load faster, Turbo mode not needed for the rest of simulation (although makes it a tiny bit faster).
Red dot at beginning signifies where the ant will start.
Click to place blozck; z to toggle between placing block and removing block.
Space to start simulation

Notes and Credits

Again, another 1s1s Cellular Automaton.
If you liked it, remember to click love-it! Enjoy!

This one is called Langton's Ant. Read more about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Langton%27s_ant

This one goes a LOT faster than my Conway's Game of Life simulation, which can be found here: http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/13764980/
