Paperclip computer – CT-650 computer trainer

Paperclip computer - CT-650 computer trainer

These are the retro stylings of a surviving example of the Arkay (later Comspace) CT-650 computer trainer, a historic computing device designed mostly as an educational tool and build almost entirely based on the plans in a book titled How to Build a Working Digital Computer.

How To Build a Working Digital Computer, published in 1968, provided instructions and plans for constructing a working digital computer out of household parts including paper clips for switches. The book can still be accessed in digital form at Archive.org here:

Helium – Visions by Mark Zug

Helium by Mark Zug

Helium
by Mark Zug

The first of the Noble Gases, Helium is named from the Greek root helios, meaning sun. As a gas it is buoyant in air, entirely benign in the body, and does not freeze at any temperature we can devise. Her emission spectrum is a rosy vermillion. Helium is useful for scientific experiments into superconductivity — the absence of electrical friction — and as a liquid it is a superfluid which will climb the walls of its container to escape. She is effortlessly powerful, radiant, benevolent, and not a little “above it all.” The opposite number to Radon.

Wonderful Life With the Elements – A Periodic Table of People

Germanium by Benpei Yorifuji

In Wonderful Life With the Elements: The Periodic Table Personified, Japanese artist Benpei Yorifuji personifies every chemical element as a comic character. He goes further and differentiates them into groups by their fashion sense. For example, elements used in industrial application wear business attire. A fun, illustrated, fact-filled periodic table.
