Most of the computer's architecture has been worked out (at least on paper...)
Here is a schematic overview of the entire architecture:

Let me explain what I have in mind:

I really want to be able to use this machine to teach others about CPU architecture.
I'm planning to add LED indicators to all the modules in order to visualize the data flow.
Aside from that the machine can be single stepped and programs can be loaded straight into RAM using switches.
