A project log for Relay-based projects

A list of projects where the relays are doing some kind of processing or computing - i.e. something more than just switching a load.

Covers the early electromechanical calculators :-)


The Harwell Dekatron / WITCH calculator, uses Dekatron tubes for storage and telephone relays for the rest. The oldest electronic computer that is still working !

The computational speed is crazy and tested "live" !


More links welcome !
