Tube Races

Tubes move by binding stuff on one end and releaseing it on the other. In this world two tubes race each other by compeating for free stuff in the environment.

Mike Danilchik suggested to me that computers might provide useful simulations of the growth dynamics of a cell's microtubules. I created this rectangular version that bound and unbound elements based on concentrations of components subject to brownian motion.
