Here's a video of the device as "holographic microverse generator" without commentary or sound.

It runs vanilla game of life, but the slightly distorted display lets some humanoid shapes and mysterious stories evolve in its little toroidal universe (with a bit of imagination). It's a 42x7 cell grid that wraps around the edges.

Inspired by the holographic principle, postulating a dual representation of our universe with one less dimension. Enjoy the automata borealis!
