anyone know if you can build one out of lego?

Meh, this sounds like vapourware to me.

It has been said that a lecturer at a UK university expressed the opinion that a good engineer would be able to scavenge the land for silicon and the appropriate dopants to create their own transistors and thus circuits.

There may be evidence to say that this has been attempted already.

If you should examine Stonehenge it bears a REMARKABLE similarity to a series of FETs (Field Effect Transistor) forming a NMOS logic circuit. Therefore could form a Bit Slice Machine.

As can be seen the Stonehenge approach is definitely an Open Source approach therefore should satisfy all takers. It definitely has NO documentation so would satisfy the curious in trying to work out the Instruction Set Architecture.

It could be said that the lichen form natural traps and therefore as Stonehenge gets older it might actually get faster.

Therefore the lack of the Broadcom device should NOT form any barrier to the Open Source Community with regard to TOSSEER as they would be able to build their own compute element as the British were able to do 5000 years ago.

Also note that the stone came from Wales, thus again showing that Flintshire is on the cutting edge of Neolithic Technology !

An entire radio receiver, with transistor, built from scratch.

The transistor is on page 35 onwards.

Real women make their own homebrew NMOS silicon transistors, not those crude copper/galena ones.

or, as John Lennon once said (and indeed, sang):

"All we are saying, is give 'Pi's a chance…"


that works best in a foreign accent.

[which country/accent was it where  PIe sounds like PIss ? dutch or was it one of the scandinavian ones?]



You would say [pi] like "pee" in many languages : french, spanish, italian, german, dutch… And, last but not least… greek. ^^

Open fire sounds too nonindustrial maybe a ceramics kiln and a spatula of course the char wont be as good but you may have cleaner ash from the process this way.

good post
If you are more worried about ,spelling, punctuation or grammar you have probably already missed the point so please just move on.
