Rob's p16 is a period-16 oscillator that was found by Rob Liston on February 10, 2020 using Adam P. Goucher's apgsearch.[1] It is the smallest known period-16 oscillator in terms of both population and bounding box, the first p16 to appear naturally, the first known statorless p16, and the first new rotor discovered by asymmetric soup search since the 1980s. It also gives off weak sparks.[2]
