The Monkey Shakespeare Simulator
Library Home || Full Table of Contents || Library Help
|Simulating monkeys typing randomly on typewriters, this Java applet displays output that matches text from any of Shakespeare's plays in real-time. To raise the chances of "interesting results within our lifetimes," this simulation runs at an accelerated rate of one day every second, and allows the population of monkeys to increase exponentially. Read about the probabilities of monkeys spontaneously typing Shakespeare; submit record results.|
