Description Please have a look at our CodeBug-Robotarm-Starbasic-5Bit-Relay-Adder. It's historical and modern, hard- and software, unique and common and, most importantly, it's useless.

The extended adder is one of the joint projects of hacKNology, a hackerspace in Konstanz, and CompuRama-Radolfzell, a bunch of computer historians.

It would be terrible if the extended adder was already finished. But it works mostly. Let's see how you and we will promote it.

Arrival and build up One person with the equipment on Dec 26, 2017, 10:00 am, the other people a day later.


So far we know that the assembly will be placed in Hall 2 close to an old white vintage bus.

CodeBug is a microprocessor for education and cheaper but also easier than e.g. Arduino or Raspberry Pi. It is easyly wearable and can be programmed visually based on Google's Blockly framework. It controls the robot arm. The first robot arm uses analog motors with end switches. The Relay-Adder schematic is animated using a Libre Office Calc spreadsheet that uses Starbasic macros. This visualization is not yet connected to the Relay-Adder. The Adder is about 35 years old. It uses 3 relays per bit. It can also subtract!
