Generate text using Conway's Game of Life. (Ruby)

For my dad's birthday, I wanted to make something special. Inspired by the software Golly and their awesome logo animation, I decided to make a text generator using Conway's Game of Life.Golly Logo

I scoured the web to see if something like this had already been done before, but I could barely find anything. I luckily stumbled across a blog post from 2009 here about a similar idea, and some old ruby code that I used as a starting point.

Most of the code was fine I used the same algorithm as the blog post, but I had to make some changes to make it work with the latest version of Ruby.

Anyway here's the code on GitHub if you want to check it out.
