    as an electrical engineer, I was marginally disappointed that it didn`t actually perform convolution, but I guess I shouldn`t have expected it. still cool.

    alibi19-a wooden chain is made from links cut out of wood (metal ones are stamped out) and the links are joined with dowels instead of rivets.

    I`m a woodworker and i can`t imagine how long it must have took him to carve each piece by hand. It could have been done by CNC, but i doubt he knows how to operate one.
