Unicycle is a period6 oscillator made up of four copies of unix reacting with each other at their blocks.
Matthias Merzenich found an 18glider synthesis for this oscillator on October 4, 2014 based on a unix recipe found with apgsearch.^{[1]} The unicycle itself first appeared seminaturally in May 2015.^{[2]}
