A toggle circuit is any signal-processing circuit that switches back and forth between two possible states or outputs. An early example is the boat-bit. More recent discoveries include the semi-Snarks, which alternate between reflecting and absorbing input gliders. The following converter accepts B-heptominoes as input, and sends alternate glider outputs in opposite directions.
