The full LEGO Turing Machine Comes True

As Teuk comment in the previous Nxt turing machine post there's a video of a fully mechanical Turing machine made by SeTechnic member Phi with fellow students.

"At the occasion of Alan Turing's centenary, Masters students in fundamental computer sciences of the "Ecole Normale Supérieure", located in Lyon (France), pay homage to him through the building of a Turing machine in Lego."

This "pneumatic" turing machine really stunned me as the Lego digicomp did some years ago.

My congratulations for the team! If you are able to  read French (or use google translate) and liked this superb machine is a must read the thread of the creation of this machine in the Setechnic forum
