Glider pusher

From LifeWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The glider pusher is an arrangement of a queen bee shuttle and a pentadecathlon. It emits a v spark predecessor, which can push the path of a passing glider out by one half-diagonal space and change its parity. It was found by Dieter Leithner in December 1993.

It is useful for constructing complex guns where it may be necessary to produce a number of gliders travelling on close parallel paths. For instance, it is used in the northern part of the sidecar gun.
