The **Universal turing machine** is a pattern that is, by definition of a universal turing machine, capable of simulating every other turing machine. It was created by Paul Rendell and its construction was completed on February 10, 2010. This pattern is an extension of Paul Rendell's Turing machine and, being a universal turing machine, is also capable of simulating it.
