Domino computer

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Maybe i was a bit overly excited about this, but i thought i'd share it coz it's awesome

A computer making computation using dominos, not electricity.

I haven't really understood how ones and zeros can make everything work on computer but this videos clarified it a bit at least.

He says you can explain how computer works with programming, but that's not really the fundamental bit, you can still go further and i guess this goes right to the root of all joy.

 

Video explaining how ones and zeros give you a result

 

And if you're still interested, the domino calculator

on the 2nd attempt they were unucky and you can see the errors/leaks in the slow-mo, but 1st one turned out to work perfectly!

The question, though, is can you overlock it? :)

ofc!

remove some dominoes, make them more spaced out, but not too much, then more errors can occur, just like a real PC!

Should of used a dark colored backing on the dominos for better visual effect.

This is NOT the signature you are looking for.
