Wood-based computation technology

May 10, 2008

I wonder how large an Intel dual-core processor would be if you used this technology?  (Considerable expansion of the concept would be required)  If you ran Vista on it, how long would it take to redraw the screen?

(Hat tip to Greg Laden, a frequent finder of Very Cool Stuff.  And if you want to build your own marble computer, here’s more.  And there’s much more at WoodGears.  Sometimes it just astounds me how clever some people are.)

    I’d like to see logic gates in action with a similar design.  That is the coolest thing ever.  I set a link to it as my status message.

    This is awesome.  This should be mass produced and one should be put in every junior high math classroom in the country.
