GameOfLife is a project we purchased from Adafruit (http://www.adafruit.com/products/89). We dearly love this project and have had a large array working for many years. If you’ve never seen this, the boards interlock and communicate. After building the array it became evident that there was a flaw in the code. The panels could become locked into repeating patterns.
I modified the code to detect repeating patterns and issue a reset. Theoretically, only one 1.4 update chip is required per array. No more locking array.
We sell the chip preprogrammed and assume you already have an array. Simply pop out a 1.3 chip and replace with our 1.4
