Yay! I can buy one more relay for my projects! Thanks!
Dekatron

Cool! I can buy more rare stuff and I noticed you in my bfpc videos, and you just bought 20s+ of machine time! When I finish the project you may execute any application you want on one of my computers!

About

Hi, I'm Artem Kashkanov and I'm making different insane devices from old electronic parts, such as a computer of soviet reed relays, or water irrigation system, or vacuum tube computer.
Currently I have three main projects in different state:

[ACTIVE] BrainfuckPC reed relay computer

 This device is made of 578 soviet reed relays and perform 25 instructions per second. It have bad name because of instruction set - this computer perform brainfuck programming language instructions natively - this is the only one such device in the whole world yet. Computer is 95% done, so I hope to finish it this year.

[DESIGN] DekatronPC computer on vacuum and cold-cathode tubes


 This silicon-free device is in project state - I'm collecting parts and design schematic. For creating this device I will use only vacuum tubes and cold-cathode neon counters - dekatrons. I Already have 50+ dekatrons to do this. I'l start active developing of this device this year.

[DREAMS] FluidicPC wind-driven computer 

Mostly insane project maden from logic elements on Coanda effent. No electricity, No electronic, only compressed air drives the whole logic. I'll start this projects in 2-3 years..
