Submission + - Home Built Turning Machine 1

stronghawk writes: The creator of the Nickel-O-Matic is back at it and built a Turning Machine from a Parallax Propeller chip based controller, motors, a dry-erase marker and a non-infinite supply of shiny 35mm leader film. From his FAQ: "While thinking about Turing machines I found that no one had ever actually built one, at least not one that looked like Turing's original concept (if someone does know of one, please let me know). There have been a few other physical Turing machines like the Logo of Doom, but none were immediately recognizable as Turing machines. As I am always looking for a new challenge, I set out to build what you see here."
