Overweight emulator is an otherwise unstable pattern that can be turned into a period 4 oscillator. Shown to the right is a stabilisation using blinkers making direct contact with the oscillating segment; other stabilisations involve a correctly phased blinker or a still life with a 1 cell tip such as tub or beehive being used as an induction coil (one cell farther away from the oscillator than the stabilization shown at right).
