06:11:01 Software art: Gameboy autodegeneranti.
gameboy_ultraF_uk is the work of digital artists Tom Corby and Gavin Baily and consists of a Gameboy emulator with a system image rendering programmed to autodegenerare in a slow but clearly audible.

Technically, everything is based on a 'metabolism' imposed by techniques 'cellular automata', with the software code released as open source, well documented and based on 'gnuboy', the emulator (free software) programmed by Gilgamesh and Laguna .
