Hmmm... Doing a Game of Life with analog parts?

All of a sudden I feel oddly compelled to design and build a Game of Life simulation using only analog parts.  The ruleset seems to be rather "summing amplifier and comparator"-friendly.   Having to do the updates simultaneously as a discrete generation complicates things a bit, but It might be doable without too many extra parts.

I really have to think about this for a bit and see if it would be a viable project....
