Computers Structure


Most Tehcnologies slowly evolved from mechanic, to electromechanic until becoming microsized electronic devices enabling to perform billions of calculations at extreme speeds, and to be programmed and reprogrammed at will. Today, we are reaching the step of nanosized computers industrialisation, and computers efficiency is about to be demultiplied by technologies issued from quantum physics.

Open source hardware resources have been recently developed to open these complex technologies to general audience, under the form of accessible technological bricks such as Arduino Boards and Shields ( LilyPad ) , providing highly customisable DIY solutions, and a good way to understand what a computer is made of.
