A Turing machine that exhibits behavior which seems in many respects random. The Turing machine has four possible states for its head, and two possible colors for each cell on its tape. It starts with all cells white, corresponding to a blank tape. Each column above shows 250 steps of evolution; the compressed form on the left corresponds to a total of 20,000 steps.
