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). The blinkers can also be replaced with t-noses.

It was found by Robert Wainwright.[1]
