Toggleable gun

From LifeWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A toggleable gun is any gun that can be turned off or turned on by the same external signal — the simplest possible switching mechanism. An input signal causes the gun to stop producing gliders. Another input signal from the same source restores the gun to its original function. Compare switchable gun.

Here's a small example by Dean Hickerson from September 1996:
