Wooden Fractal Computer

According to Brent’s blog, “This prototype of the core stands about one meter tall. The final version of the core will stand over two meters tall and is one of three subunits that preform calculations, logic operations, and store/load values.”

For the past six months, I???ve watched and admired Brent Thorne???s whimsical laser-cut creations. I???ve seen him create complex zoetropes and elaborate gear systems, but his latest creation is amazing. Brent is building a fractal computer out of wooden laser-cut parts.

Brent???s creation will eventually be able to continually draw fractals. He estimates a build time of about 160 hours. You can read more about this and see videos on his blog.
