Many observers have marveled at the beauty of the synchronous flashing of fireflies that has an almost hypnotic effect. In this paper we consider the issue of evolving two-dimensional cellular automata as well as random boolean networks to solve the firefly synchronization task. The task was successfully solved by means of cellular programming based co-evolution performing computations in a completely local manner, each cell having access only to its immediate neighbor's states. An FPGA-based Evolware implementation on the BioWall's cellular tissue and different other simulations show that the approach is very efficient and easily implementable in hardware.
