Imagine if we'd gone down this technological path. Houses would have air compressors beside the hot water tank, you'd have at least one air outlet per room, which you'd plug your computers into... The computers would be soundproofed and have mufflers. If something went wrong you'd go to the shop with the nerdy plummer department. I guess anything can get techy.

"processes binary signals by sucking air out of tubes to represent a 0, or letting it back in to represent a 1."

crazy

But can it compress the data!?

hehe yeh totally weird.  air outlets every room! god that would be weird as hell, like a twilight zone episode,  here let me just switch on the air tv.  (and its totally possible to make mechanical air screens, u just cant get active lighting, only passively lit.)


And lock,  in the vid hes showing off the oscillator and then the register,  its pretty much exactly the same as an electrical computer, in design.

At least air is all around you, full power!! All you need is a pump, or heat. You switch around the air, one goes in and one gets pushed out. Imagine a wind powered airplane with air circuits 8)

Yeh mate, its how the great voyages of discovering all the land back in the 1600's with the pirate sails, at my current theory im stuck with a giant battery cause it doesn't compress without a tonne of force.
Ive seen the hand force compression, and it doesn't look enough.  its actually as strong as your arm is - but it doesn't last that long volume wise.
