simsim314 wrote:The only problem I can find in this plan except the execution, is that geminoids tend to work slowly, so the turing process will not be fun to observe. Anyway I think it will be the most "visually appealing" and simplistic universal computation simulator, the mechanism of which is also quite simple to understand.
simsim314 wrote:I had some simplifying idea. Think that we could build a mechanism that has internal logic in it - that works like turing machine (i.e. all the triggers for head-tape states). All we need is a gun - that shoots the same slow salvo construction over and over again - and our output needs to be the construction block moved by some delta. This is basically slider gun that shoots Turing machine logic circuitry.
simsim314 wrote:One point to notice here is that this infinite tape turing machine can be extended to only one side - the other side is limited by the gun "core", this is still universal and much the same for most purposes.

dvgrn wrote:To prove that a one-sided tape is universal, don't you have to do something awful like pretend the odd tape locations are negative, and only the even ones are positive?
