Glider to block is a converter discovered by Paul Callahan in 1996 that places a block at its right edge in response to a single glider input. This has a variety of uses in Herschel circuitry and other signal-processing applications. In the infobox, it can then be used to spartanly reflect a glider.

In the infobox, a duoplet represents the position of the block.
