Syringe/Snippet

From LifeWiki

The syringe is a glider-to-Herschel converter composed of an eater 1, a block, a beehive with tail, and a large welded still life that combines an eater 2 and an eater 5. It works by converting a bait block into a pi, then hassling the pi into a B-heptomino that restores the bait block over the course of its evolution. The syringe allows much more compactness and timing versatility in signal circuitry than Herschel conduits alone.

The syringe was voted on ConwayLife.com as Pattern of the Year 2015.
