A digital electronics engineer from the Cambridge, United Kingdom has recently built a giant computer at his own house which is 10-metre wide and 2-metre high, and basically dubbed as “Megaprocessor”.

What if say that, a man from the Cambridge, United Kingdom has recently completed building a 10-metre wide and 2-metre high computer at his own house. Yes, many of you might be thinking that what rubbish am I talking about. So, now let’s just have a clear and fair look on the matter that for what reason James Newman, a digital electronics engineer who built a giant computer at his home.

According to the sources, it was found that the digital electronics engineer from the Cambridge, United Kingdom, James Newman, has built a 10-metre wide and 2-metre high computer at his own house, just to play a classic video game known as “Tetris”.

As the digital electronics engineer from the Cambridge, United Kingdom, James Newman has just taken only four years and $53,000 to build the processor, (Yes, he just took only four years and $53,000) which actually works exactly like a small microprocessor chip in a regular desktop or laptop works, which is about the size of a mobile sim card.

The digital electronics engineer from the Cambridge, United Kingdom, James Newman said and explains the entire contraption in a video that “This room-sized giant computer carries only 40,000 transistors along with the 10,000 LED lights, which weighs around half a ton, it means 500Kgs and consumes 500W of electricity”.

As he stated that “The homemade “mega processor” is essentially a blown up version of a tiny chip that allows you to see how all the elements of a computer chip join together and how it actually works. It was born out of a conversation Newman was having with some work colleagues when someone remarked it would be easier if we had an LED on a signal”.

Moreover, the digital electronics engineer from the Cambridge, United Kingdom, James Newman explains on his own website that “Computers are quite opaque, looking at them it’s impossible to see how they work. What I would like to do is get inside and see what’s going on. Hence, the trouble is we can’t shrink down small enough to walk inside a silicon chip”.

The digital electronics engineer James Newman also assumes that the Megaprocessor will be utilized as an educational tool. Hence, the digital electronics engineer James Newman is preparing a series of open days at his own home over the summer. James Newman acknowledges that “My dream is that it goes to a museum or educational institute so that people can learn from it”.
