This small grid and the examples provided with it (in the "Sample Configurations" section above) give a good introduction to using the Cell Matrix. There is also some documentation to show you how to make use of this simulator. If you don't see anything above this block of text, check your browser's settings and make sure that Java is enabled.
    This Java applet was developed by Jim Pearn. Jim heard about the Cell Matrix from Hugo de Garis' review article and decided to develop this browser version of the Cell Matrix simulator. He is graciously allowing us to post it here for others to use and explore. You can contact Jim at: or
