R64 is an elementary conduit, one of the original sixteen Herschel conduits, discovered by Dave Buckingham in September 1995. After 64 ticks, it produces a Herschel rotated 90 degrees clockwise at (11, 9) relative to the input. Its recovery time is 153 ticks. This can be improved to 61 ticks by adding a from-the-side eater inside the turn, as shown in the infobox to avoid interference from the output Herschel's first natural glider, and further reduced to 57 ticks by adding an eater 1 (in the ghost position) to remove the temporary block.

R64 is one of the simplest known Spartan conduits, one of the three known Blockic conduits, and one of the few elementary conduits in the original set of sixteen.

In the pattern shown in the infobox, a ghost Herschel marks the output location.
