Turing Machine Prototype made out of laser-cut wood, motors,and Arduino
The Turing machine is a concept taught in many Computer Science courses, but often it remains a theoretical topic with no connection to real devices. Some nice prototypes exist, and this project aims at making just another one of them. A major challenge for me, a beginner in the makers community!
After many years as a professional in ICT research and innovation, I recently started looking with great interest at the makers’ community and culture. Lucky enough to live in Torino, the city of the first italian fablab, I decided to try in person the experience with this crazy (for me) project!
