Alan Turing in Lego

Have a look at this  construction of a LEGO Turing machine, a manifestation of the classic computer science concept first devised by Alan Turing in 1936. The device, built by the two netherlands researchers, Jereon van den Bos and Davy Landman using a single LEGO Mindstorms NXT set, is one of the most impressive — and simple — attempts I’ve seen at building a physical Turing machine.
