Glider emulator is a small glide-symmetric tagalong alternating between 7 and 8 cells, pulled by two counterphased big gliders. It was discovered by Gabriel Nivasch in January 1999.

The tagalong supplies the same one-bit sparks as are found in the odd-parity phases of a glider -- so it can replace the leading glider in glider tagalongs such as Orion 2 or canada goose.
