Knex Computer - DONE

All 8 computational bits and the additional operand bit have been completed and the computer can now add and subtract numbers as large as 255, in less than 30 seconds, making it the most powerful, fastest and most compact k'nex computer in the world (to my knowledge). All of its functions are controlled by the "keyboard" at the bottom of the computer which are attached to the "RAM" (the long, dense bit along the very top) by long linkage rods. Video coming soon.


  1. This is awesome, I can't wait to see the video.

  2. Meh. Not really a "computer" is it? More like a calculator. I think for it to constitute as a computer it has to be programmable, have both RAM and ROM memory, and maybe be turing complete. It is possible to do this with some work.

  3. did you ever make that video? I'd love to see it.
