A Physarum machine is a programmable amorphous biological computing device experimentally implemented in plasmodium of Physarum polycephalum. A Physarum machine is programmed by configurations of repelling and attracting gradients, and functions on a wide range of substrates and in a broad scope of environmental conditions. A Physarum machine can play a role of universal and general-purpose computer yet also efficiently solve specialised tasks. We overview few topics of Physarum machine research including routing signals with light, plane tessellation, and planar hull approximation.
