The Digi Comp - It is back and it is bigger than ever [Video]
posted May 25 2012 18:35.45 by Giorgos Lazaridis




It was one of the first educational mechanical computers back in the 60's, and it was called "The Digi-Comp II". Actually, it was a toy which used marbes to do basic digital calculations. Windell Oskay and Lenore Edman -under the alias of Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories- decided to build one larger ersion of this remarkable mechanical computer for the Maker Faire, and thus they ended up with this 4 by feet in size replica which uses 8-balls instead of marbles. I really enjoyed this video in which the giant digi-comp makes the multiplication 3 x 13 !
