Building a mechanical computer in Dwarf Fortress
What’s geekier than Dwarf Fortress? Answer, building your own home-made mechanical computer. What’s even geekier than either of these hobbies? Combining them, of course! And that’s what Jong over on the Dwarf Fortress forum has done. He’s built a mechanical computer in Dwarf Fortress. You can check out his theorycrafting or go right to the description of construction and testing, or just have a look at the sweet pictures on the DF Map Archive.
I think I agree with a forum commenter: “Holy crap, someone just won Dwarf Fortress!”
