We present the firefly machine, an evolving hardware system, demonstrating that `evolving ware,' evolware, can be attained. The system is based on the cellular programming approach, in which parallel cellular machines evolve to solve computational tasks. The firefly system operates with no reference to an external device, such as a computer that carries out genetic operators, thereby exhibiting online autonomous evolution.
