A new stand-alone complex system hardware emulator, called the Wolfram Machine, is introduced in this paper. The system is a programmable hardware cellular automaton able to emulate and show the outcome of all elementary cellular automata, allowing for their experimental analysis.The system consists of an LED matrix and a board equipped with a microcontroller. Thissimple low-cost system can be programmed to reproduce the complex behavior of Wolfram’s cellular automata, ranging from periodic patterns to Turing machines and Isles of Eden. A complete gallery of experiments is included.
