Turing Machine brought to life with Lego

Researchers put their Mindstorms to it

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Check out this badass Turing Machine made from a single Lego Mindstorms Nxt kit, an impressive reincarnation of the classic concept conceived by maths boffin Alan Turing in 1936.

While Turing's idea had an infinite tape, the researchers that built this particular machine were limited to just 32.

Put together by Jereon van den Bos and Davy Landman, the Lego Turing machine is on display at the Centrum Wiskunde and Informatica in the Netherlands as part of a Alan Turing exhibition.

The famed scientist would have received his birthday letter from the Queen this Saturday and there are Turing events being organised worldwide to celebrate the landmark. ®
