A project log for SPDT16: 16-bits arithmetic unit with relays

Let's imagine I could get about 200 SPDT relays. Of course I would know what to do with them :-D But will 200 be enough ?

It appears that I have more relays than I planned. Like, twice more. This makes me think about how to better use them...

More relays means the possibility of a more complex system, which remains to be determined. However the current design still must be completed because the critical electrical design elements are studied. I will probably make a smaller design, with 8 or 10 bits maybe... More relays for the larger design !

Any suggestion for the use of more relays ? I have a vague idea but it might still be too ambitious...

Meanwhile, I'll play with some of these relays with the kids, during the workshops :-)
