Here's a nifty addition to our collection of Google easter eggs. If you search for Conway's Game Of Life, a well-known simulation of basic biological processes, Google will show you a simple version of it.
The Game Of Life starts with a basic set of cells and then applies simple rules to determine if any given cell lives or dies in the next generation. Google shows you the network of cells in the top right corner, gradually expanding over your results; you can pause the results, maximise them to full the entire screen, or kill the add-on altogether. Like most Google easter eggs, it serves no useful purpose but it's good fun.
