Is my OBBLOG
Ignoring the equivalences of the Karnaugh table, OBBLOG contains all the possible logic gates with two inputs and one output.
This is the partial living OBBLOG Truth Table:
For to build a operating toy, I added forks, crossings at different levels and bit visualizers. (Similar to a light bulb)
However, the toy did not have flip-flops, so you could not make a numbers counter, although small binary calculators 1 to 16 bits.
The toy allows to build little and simple animated toys:
Or more complex constructions:
But from the initial basic logic gates, I discovered that it was possible to build a flip-flop:
(And consequently a counter of binary numbers):
(The obblog allows a closed loop that continues
to circulate indefinitely if not obstructed)
I posted all this, because yesterday I found similar artifacts along the history of computing:
The article published in Scientific American the December of 1964:
Fluid logic devices, all based in the Coanda effect:
(Fluidic amplifier: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fluidics)
Referred by: Fluidic computing at Bowles Fluidics:
Coding and computation in microfluidics.
And the conference from Manu Prakash,
The manu Prakash Thesis: (About "microfluidic bubble logic"), and inside this beautiful Truth table about logic gates and its equivalents in transistors, valves, electrical devices, and fluidics:
Some examples of projected fluidic devices:
(from Prakash thesis)
Integrated fluidic logic gates with a schematic integrated control circuit
The main patents about fluidics, come from the sixties:
And schema about Coanda effect from Popular Science (Jun 1967 Pag 118) :
And the: Fluidics: Basic components and applications
By: James W. Joyce (1977; Unclassified: 1983):
And from the conference:
APPLIED HYDRAULICS AND PNEUMATICS U5MEA23 Prepared by Mr. Jayavelu.S & Mr. Shri Harish Assistant Professor, Mechanical. http://slideplayer.com/slide/5675986/
I would like to see these companions of my program, running.
Anyway, everybody can see them inside the Bowles products:
And inside of the Theranos patented devices: (Lab-on-a-chip)
