Crazy Electronics Games

So I’ve been working on the trinary thing, worked out basically I’m using a negative charge to represent ‘2’. Hence I’m really dealing with a saw tooth (hard shaped sine) wave. So the clock generator may just be a bodged sine wave generator instead of a 555. Or I could double up the 555 and kill one of the 4 states. Sine would be more clean but 555s a lot easier to play with on a bread board. Once the clocks done then I need to work out the three state flippty-flop. All fun stuff that probably has no use but stops me reading paranoid inducing social media, news and computer games.

So I’m getting back into my basic electronics again with a 555 timer and breadboard. I’m trying to advance the flip-flop into a trinary state flippty-flop. That means going back to using capacitors and pre integrated circuit electronics. This probably means nothing to you but if it does yes using a binary based 555 is cheating a bit but I intend to replace that with an analogue wind up clock. How steampunkelectronic is that? If you have to ask why? … you really don’t understand bipolar intellectual stimulation requirements.

Trinary Computers

The weird thing about coming out of hypermania is some of the crazy ideas you bring out might actually work. Last time I developed a theoretical Runic computer but upon further investigation it was nothing but a different Turin machine.

This time using the TTL 555 timing chip and some clever soldering I may have the genesis of a Trinary computer. Basically a Base 3 mathematical device. At first it would be totally unhackable because all the code would need to start from scratch and I would probably hard wire the OS. But hell it may just prove useful for let’s say automated cars, anti hack built-in from the ground up. Add a layer obscurations by having a Runic interface. And of course a back door to gain control of units gone rogue. A line of code for it would look like this;

AAB CAB CCA BAC in decimal using X operand 2 2 6 6, and the ABC would be the respective first aett Rune from the 3 families of the Elder Futhark.

I’ll draw it up one night and plot the PCB. This is not Turin because it is not binary so none of Booles rules apply.

You never know I may replace the 555 with an actual mechanical clock making the device somewhat EMP proof.
