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 11glider synthesis is known for a stator variant of this oscillator which uses one block, one boat and two houses for stabilization.^{[1]}
