180-degree kickback

Jump to: navigation, search

180-degree kickback is the only other two-glider collision besides the standard kickback that produces a clean output glider with no leftover ash. The 180-degree change in direction is occasionally useful in glider synthesis, but is rarely used in signal circuitry or in self-supporting patterns like the Caterpillar or Centipede, because 90-degree collisions are generally much easier to arrange.
