Hertz oscillator is a period 8 oscillator that was found in 1970 by John Conway's group. It features two blocks and two snakes used as induction coils (i.e. to stabilize the sides).
An 11-glider synthesis is known for a stator variant of this oscillator which uses one block, one boat and two houses for stabilization.
