50 years ago at Moscow State University Nikolay Brusentsov created an unusual computer Setun on the ternary logic. In it not bits and bytes, to which we are used to, but trites and trytes, were processed.

Amateurs who decided to study the possibilities of ternary logic on a more modern base were found. Watch the series of video clips from Dmitry Sokolov.

Юбилей ЭВМ Сетунь

50 лет назад в МГУ Николай Петрович Брусенцов создал необычную вычислительную машину Сетунь на троичной логике. В ней обрабатывались не биты и байты, к которым мы с вами привыкли, а триты и трайты.

Нашлись любители, которые решили изучить возможности троичной логики на более современной базе. Смотрите цикл видео роликов от Дмитрия Соколова.
