YEs. It's actually the classic Gosper Glider Gun, of course.

And no it's not autograpped by Prof Conway, and for that matter there's 
no label for it to be autograhed on. The only bit of classic-computer 
related stuff I have that is autograpphed is the book 'Automatic Digital 
Computers', mine is autogrpahed by Professor Wilkes.
