The Digi-Comp II: First Edition is a modern, fully-operational recreation of the Digi-Comp II, the classic 1960′s educational computer kit. It’s an automatic binary digital mechanical computer, capable of conducting basic operations like adding, multiplying, subtracting, dividing, counting, and so forth. And what’s more, all of these operations are conducted by the action of balls rolling down a slope, directed by mechanical switches and flip flops, and all powered by gravity.
