Craft item of the day

Via Evil Mad Scientist lab:

How to build a working computer out of paperclips.

paperclip 1
How to Build a Working Digital Computer is both an introduction to the “new and exciting field of digital computers” and a set of plans to build one.  What’s especially interesting is that the plans don’t call for any specialized electronic components, but instead show how to build everything from parts that you might find at a hardware store: items like paper clips, little light bulbs, thread spools, wire, screws, and switches (that can optionally be made from paper clips).

here is the book they link to, at Internet archives.
